Holiday Calendars: Mo’edim and Holidays for 2018 – 2019

Shalom, everyone! The following is the Holiday Calendar for the ecclesiastical year beginning in the Spring on Rosh Chodesh First Month (Aviv) for the period 2018 – 2019. There will be a difference in the date for Shavuot than the date on the post-exilic Hebrew calendar. For those observing the mo’edim and holidays according to the post-exilic Hebrew calendar, please visit Hebcal.com to confirm these dates. All holidays begin at sundown on the evening before the date specified in the tables below. For example, if the date for 1st of Aviv was listed as April 1, then the holiday begins at sundown on March 31 and ends at nightfall on April 1

Dates in bold are yom tov (day of rest), so they have similar obligations and restrictions to Shabbat (Sabbath) in the sense that normal “work” is forbidden:
