We use the Jewish calendar to celebrate the Feasts of the LORD.   We have chosen this particular calendar because it is when all of Israel and the Jewish people around the world celebrate the Appointed Times.  Though we understand there are differing viewpoints, we wait for the return of Yeshua, the Messiah of Israel to restore all things correctly.  In the meantime, it is our desire as part of the nations to be in unity with the Jewish People, the Chosen People,  so as to make them jealous for their own Messiah (Romans 11).

All festivals begin at sunset and last 24 hours.

Sabbath – Weekly Appointed Time, Sunset Friday to Sunset Saturday

New Moon Festivals – Begin at the conjunction of the new (dark moon).  All Biblical holy days are set according to the new moon/new month of approx. 28 day cycles.   Passover and Sukkot should fall on a full moon as they are both the 14-15 day of each month.
