{Note: As I expected the new moon was not seen on March 7 (which was the 29th day or Yehovah’s 12th month), so the default is the 30th day which is makes the evening of March 8th the start of Yehovah’s next month. I say “next month” because of what was found (really, not found) and reported concerning the search for the aviv barley in Israel yesterday and today. Here is there report.
As a result of this report there will be a 13th month in Yehovah’s calendar this year (this happens once every 2-3 years).]
FYI the link above is assuming a April 6th sighting (but this date also is a 29th day of the 13th month. If, on 4/6 the new moon is not seen due to clouds or overcast skies, then the evening of April 7th will be the default start of the new year. Which will make Passover one day later.
Hope all this helps you with your planning. It does for me.
Thanks to all our faithful friends in Israel who looked for the new moon and provided this Aviv Barley Search Report.

Why is a 13th calendar month required periodically? Because Yehovah’s months are 29.53 days long, and His year is 29.53 X 12 = 354.36 days long (approximately 12 days shorter than the Roman calendar) there comes a point in which a 13th month must be added. This is why finding the Aviv new moon is so important. By finding it we are following Yehovah’s rhythm. The Aviv / Abib Barley link on the next line will explain this much more thoroughly.

The Aviv / Abib Barley + A New Moon = Hebrew New Year

The start of this festival always begins with a Passover slaughter for all Yehovah’s faithful Ezrach men and all other Gerim who wish to enter into covenant with Him on this moed (His appointed time).

Are You Ready For Passover?

Only the Ezrach and the the Ger (who dwell with them) can draw near and partake of Passover; and only AFTER the Ger has been circumcised in the flesh (with all the men of his household). When the Ger eats it he becomes as one born in the land, an Ezrach, and enters into covenant with Yehovah for the first time. And when the Ezrach eats it, he renews His covenant with Yehovah for yet another year.

And when a stranger [Ger] dwells with you [the Ezrach] and wants to keep the Passover to Yehovah, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall become as a native of the land [Ezrach]. For no uncircumcised person shall eat it. (Exo 12:48)

Who are the Ger and the Ezrach? That is something you need to discover quickly because there are no Gentiles in Yehovah’s kingdom; there are only men who WERE Gentiles. These precious men left the kingdom of their birth and then joined themselves to Yehovah and His called out men. And then, at a real Passover, they enter into covenant with Yehovah and become His Ezrach men. This is how a man’s sins are forgiven!

Below is a link to the 1st of a 4 part series of articles discussing how a Gentile becomes a Ger. It is a great place to start for those who want to learn Yehovah’s set-apart ways and be prepared for Passover.
