New Moon Report – March 2009 – First Biblical Month

On Friday March 27, 2009 we did not sight the moon from Jerusalem. The horizon was covered with clouds. The moon would have been visible if there had not been clouds and therefore based on the principle of potential visibility tonight begins the new biblical month.

There may have been observers who sighted the moon from other locations around Israel but we do not expect to receive these reports until after Shabbat.

Shanah Tovah!
Happy New Year!

Nehemia Gordon
Jerusalem, Israel

From Michael Rood we have the following notice;

Yes, the barley is aviv in the land of Israel – just as it was projected to be.
There are no known occurrences of the barley not being aviv this late after the vernal equinox, but that is not all there is to Rosh HaShannah this year! The
astronomical calculations for the sighting of the new moon from Jerusalem tonight is only 1.18% illumination with the moon standing at 10.49 degrees above the horizon at five minutes after sunset. If the atmospheric conditions are favorable, the new moon will be seen tonight in Israel. But the atmosphere is not under the direct control of mere mortals – we must wait to see whether the hundreds of experienced new moon observers in Israel will be able to catch a glimpse of the moon which will herald the head of the Biblical year. The sighting of the aviv moon will reckon whether Passover commences at sunset April 10th – or whether a cloudy sky will necessitate a 30 day month by default and the Passover seder commences at the end of the Sabbath on April 11th, 2009.

If there are any brethren in Jerusalem, Israel who are going to be keeping the Passover according to the sighted moon calendar, please contact me at

And from the Israeli New Moon Society we have this report.

Please look for the Moon from Israel and most of the World this Friday 27th March 2009. From Jerusalem (and similarly for the rest of Israel) the Moon may be visible from 18:58 till 19:03 (Summer time – don’t forget to change your clocks in Israel Friday morning) and will not be difficult to see. At 18:58 the Moon will be at azimuth 277° (3½° right of the sunset) and 10½° high. The Moon will appear to tilt right rather than its usual left. From Australia and South Africa, the Moon will only appear the next day.

We are arranging a moonwatch for those in Ma’ale Adummim. This will take place, weather permitting, on Friday at 18:40 (summer time) in the small park between 52 and 54 Mitspe Nevo (Barkan bldgs . ) . Minchah prayers followed by the appearance of the Moon then kabbalat Shabbat and Maariv .

Whoever sees the Moon is invited to a reconstruction of giving testimony before a beit din on Sunday 29th March 2009 between 17:30 and 18:30 at 8, Beer Sheva St., Jerusalem. Please call the secretary on 025661962 or 0506733831 to arrange a time.

Concerning the events of today, brethren this is what we have. The New Moon has not been Seen. As Norman Willis explains next, this is the procedure we must follow. This once again is an excellent example of exactly why no man can know the day or the hour of the return of Yahshua. The variable factor of the moon is just not possible to determine until it is actually seen. And it is this variableness that comes into play on the Feast of Trumpets, the every day the Messiah is to return on.

Passover on Shabbat, 4/11/09

Shalom, Nazarenes.

On 3/27, observers in Jerusalem looked for, but did not see the first crescent sliver of the new moon. Unless other observers later send in reports that the first crescent sliver was seen from other parts of the Land of Israel, then according to the example given in Scripture, the month defaults to its ‘standard’ 30-day length.

Unless other sightings come in from the Land of Israel, these are the Spring Festival Dates for 2009:

Rosh Hashanah (Head of the Year): sunset 3/28 thru sunset 3/29 (day after Shabbat).

Pesach (Passover): afternoon of 4/11 (Shabbat).

First Day of Unleavened: sunset 4/11 thru sunset 4/12 (day after Shabbat).

Omer (Wave Sheaf): Afternoon of the First Day of Unleavened Bread.

Last Day of Unleavened: sunset 4/17 thru sunset 4/18 (day after Shabbat).

Shavuot (Pentecost): sunset 5/31 thru sunset 6/1 (day after Shabbat).

The Fall Festival Days cannot be established until the new moon of the seventh month is seen. However, I have included the possible dates in the attachment. (Please use only this latest version. The website will also be updated to reflect this data.)

On the Torah Calendar, the Spring Festivals ‘fall two days after’ the dates on the Rabbinic Calendar, and ‘one day behind’ the Karaite Calendar. (In other words, the Rabbinical Calendar is two days ahead, and the Karaites are only one day ahead.)

May YHWH bless you for wanting to learn about, and keep His calendar.

We now continue with this week’s News Letter which was done in anticipation of this being the start of the New Year.

We have asked you previously, to join us in prayers asking Yahweh to let the barley not be Aviv. We asked that His will be done. It was not His will to give us more time. We asked this in order to give us more time, another 30 days, to warn others of the importance of keeping this Sabbatical year which we have now begun. We continue to warn you and others of the impending disasters that are soon going to overtake our countries and the world. The Famines and Pestilences, and Earth Quakes as we are told in Mathew 24:7, Mark 13:8, Luke 21:11 by Yahshua and also in Lev 26:21-22.

In spite of our request Yahweh has made the Barley ready, which you can confirm by the following three reports from those who have gone to Israel in search of ripe, green ears of Barley which is needed in order to have the first wave sheaf offering after the weekly Sabbath during the days of Unleavened Bread.

Lev 23:11 He shall wave the sheaf before the Lord, to be accepted on your behalf; on the day after the Sabbath the priest shall wave it.

Le 23:12 And you shall offer on that day, when you wave the sheaf, a male lamb of the first year, without blemish, as a burnt offering to the Lord.

Le 23:15 ‘And you shall count for yourselves from the day after the Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering: seven Sabbaths shall be completed.

Aviv Search 2009

Report #3, March 25, 2009

Hi Folks,
We hope all is well with you all. Today we found many different locations that had barley which will be ready before Wavesheaf Day all on its own. I tried to attach pictures to an email to everyone a while ago but it would not work for me. They will be sent out once I get home and someone there can do so. The barley we picked yesterday in the JV is already hard enough with one day of drying so it can not be split with a fingernail.

Brian, Linda, Gerald, and Lynne

Report #2, March 24, 2009

Hi Folks,
Lots of rain last night and during parts of the day here in Jerusalem. The Jordan Valley and northward was on and off in spots with some very light to moderate showers during the trip today. We made quite a few stops with the wild barley being in excellant condition in most locations. We found spots where it was semi-hard dough and others where it was in the flowering stage, and others in between. As has been the case in the past the higher the elevation traveled and inspected the younger the barley was. The red streak strains once again proved to be more advanced than others reguarless of which location they were found in. Much of the central Jordan Valley is being utilized for cash crops and vineyards at an incredible pace. It is amazing to see how even the roadside barley in those locations has been cropped down by all the grazing goats and sheep. You can actually follow the progress northward until you run into the large traveling herds at which time all the barley appears again. This was actually the case in the area of the infamous Ein Ma’bua. Linda and I stopped there on Monday on our way to Jerusalem. The livestock trails coming in and out of it are quite numerous. The barley has been completely cropped by them over the winter months. It is trying to make an attempt to produce heads again but that I am sure will be short lived with the amount of goat and sheep activity there.

The grapes in the JV are very well along whether under nets or in the open. They are leafed out with lots of vine extentions. Several wheat fields in the N Jordan Valley were already turning color. This is the earliest I have seen that much color that far north before based on the time frame. Just a point of interest to some.

We also saw lots of storks migrating north to Europe.
All in all the JV is behind the areas of the Negev we looked at last week but similar to many other years. Tomorrow we will be traveling through the Negev. Lots of stops to make.

We have some good shots from today but I can’t seem to dublicate the process I used last week to send them out. Oh well they will have to wait!

Brian and Linda Convery, Gerald and Lynne Kirby


Report #1, March 19, 2009


Hi Folks,

Hope all is well with you all. As we promised we stopped at several locations to take some early checks on the barley growth. Linda and I arrived late afternoon and managed to stop at a dozen locations on our way to Beer Sheva to visit with Pierre and Franciose. It was a wonderful visit and we have moved on to Eilat. Pierre and Franciose send their greetings to all and especially to those they have met in the past. It seems odd not having you here travelling through Israel this year Rick.
There were many fields of wheat changing from green to brown. Some were 50% color changed and some 25% and some still green. Some pictures are attached. That puts the machine seeded wheat right where it needs to be in following patterns from the past. I will attempt to attach 5 pictures to this email. All our stops were random except for two fields I deliberately wanted to check. The ones we inspected had at their earliest stage flowering with the majority in one state of dough or another.

19 March, 2009-Elder Jacob O. Meyer would like to announce that he has found the evidence of green ears of barley in Israel. This means that the upcoming New Moon will be the month of Abib. More will follow!

Karaite Korner Newsletter #373

Aviv Found!

On Thursday March 26, 2009 we found Aviv Barley in two fields in the Jordan Valley, several kilometers south of Beth Shean. Samplings from these plots of barley were between 70% and 90% Aviv or beyond. Much of the barley we found had ripened past the stage of Aviv. Based on this there will definitely be sufficient quantities of barley that will be harvest-ready in two weeks time. Therefore, the upcoming new moon this Friday night will begin the Month of the Aviv and the new biblical year.

Chag HaMatzot (the Feast of Unleavened Bread) will begin on April 10 at sunset and continue until April 17 at sunset.

Photographs of this year’s Aviv taken by CB Newman are posted at:

The following people participated in today’s Aviv Search:
Nehemia Gordon, Ruthanne Koch, Devorah Gordon, Dina Marcus, Daniel Pitrone, Baruch ben Hosea, Adam Kinghorn, Bruce Brill, Larry Moldaur, Valerie Knowles, Miri Burgin, C. B. Newman, and Randy Boer.

We will examine the barley in the northern Negev tomorrow. However, our findings so far are adequate to determine that the upcoming new moon will begin the new biblical year.

More Aviv Found

On Friday March 27, 2009 we found more Aviv, this time in the northern Negev on road 242 south of Gama junction. This confirms our findings yesterday that the upcoming month is the Month of the Aviv.

Shanah Tovah!
Happy New Year!

It is now urgent that you let as many of the brethren as you can know that we are in a Sabbatical year and it is imperative that they also keep it Holy. Lev 26 warns us that those who do not obey Yahweh and keep his commandments will suffer the curses as stated there. The next curse is famine and pestilence and is aimed at killing the children, even the children of those who keep the Holy Days and Sabbath but refuse to keep the Sabbatical years. You can still purchase your food from last year’s stock, but time is quickly going by and soon the door of opportunity to keep this Sabbatical year will have passed.

Now that we have begun the Sabbatical year, we have to do something which is required at the end of the sixth year.

De 14:28 “At the end of every third year you shall bring out the tithe of your produce of that year and store it up within your gates.

De 26:12 “When you have finished laying aside all the tithe of your increase in the third year–the year of tithing–and have given it to the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, so that they may eat within your gates and be filled, then you shall say before the Lord your God: ‘I have removed the holy tithe from my house, and also have given them to the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, according to all Your commandments which You have commanded me; I have not transgressed Your commandments, nor have I forgotten them.

Deuteronomy 14:22 “You shall truly tithe all the increase of your grain that the field produces year by year. 23 And you shall eat before the Lord your God, in the place where He chooses to make His name abide, the tithe of your grain and your new wine and your oil, of the firstborn of your herds and your flocks, that you may learn to fear the Lord your God always. 24 But if the journey is too long for you, so that you are not able to carry the tithe, or if the place where the Lord your God chooses to put His name is too far from you, when the Lord your God has blessed you, 25 then you shall exchange it for money, take the money in your hand, and go to the place which the Lord your God chooses. 26 And you shall spend that money for whatever your heart desires: for oxen or sheep, for wine or similar drink, for whatever your heart desires; you shall eat there before the Lord your God, and you shall rejoice, you and your household. 27 You shall not forsake the Levite who is within your gates, for he has no part nor inheritance with you. 28 “At the end of every third year you shall bring out the tithe of your produce of that year and store it up within your gates. 29 And the Levite, because he has no portion nor inheritance with you, and the stranger and the fatherless and the widow who are within your gates, may come and eat and be satisfied, that the Lord your God may bless you in all the work of your hand which you do.

Deuteronomy 26:12 “When you have finished laying aside all the tithe of your increase in the third year–the year of tithing–and have given it to the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, so that they may eat within your gates and be filled, 13 then you shall say before the Lord your God: ‘I have removed the holy tithe from my house, and also have given them to the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, according to all Your commandments which You have commanded me; I have not transgressed Your commandments, nor have I forgotten them. 14 I have not eaten any of it when in mourning, nor have I removed any of it for an unclean use, nor given any of it for the dead. I have obeyed the voice of the Lord my God, and have done according to all that You have commanded me. 15 Look down from Your holy habitation, from heaven, and bless Your people Israel and the land which You have given us, just as You swore to our fathers, “a land flowing with milk and honey.”

If we want to receive the blessings from Yahweh we must be in compliance with His laws. We are told to make sure that we have given out all the tithe to the Levite, (we do not know who are Levites now so this one we are unable to give to, I am not a Levite and it would be a sin to send me tithes, so do not do it as I will not cash it), the Stranger (sojourner, a temporary inhabitant, a newcomer lacking inherited rights, of foreigners in Israel, though conceded rights, Strongs No. 1616), Fatherless, and the widow.

You are not to give this money to some church where it will become lost in their accounting books. You are to give this money to those who need your help. You do this yourself. Do not use your pastor as your middleman. And do not hold back.

I have the following e-mails I want to share with you as they have some important information in them.

Here is a great site for Unleavened Recipes. Enjoy,

How do I keep the Sabbatical year?

My family has had one year to prepare for the Sabbath Year. I have been rebuked for setting my heart to keep it. We have saved up food so that we do not have to purchase any item that was grown and harvested during the Sabbath Year For you folks hat are just coming to the conclusion that you should also keep the Sabbath Year, my heart goes out to you.

It is true that God knows your heart. He knows by your actions (behavior). You cannot say one thing and do another. If you cannot keep the Sabbath Year this year then, you will have to wait until 2016 to prove yourself, and break the curses.

We received a word that there will be a famine coming out of the Sabbath Year. We will have to wait and see if the word comes true. If not, then we will never give an ear to the family member that received that word again. If it does come true, then we received a two year waring that it was coming. And we will start storing up for a very long famine at the end of the Sabbath Year. The famine is going to get worse and worse. It never gets better. Most people will die by the time the Messiah comes back.

What are we expecting? If we are found to be observant in keeping the Sabbath Year, we expect the curses that we were born under to be broken. We expect that the blessings listed in Lev 26 will be poured out upon our family. We expect to hear a word concerning what to expect and what to prepare for. If we received a two year advance warning about the famine, what will we receive about the place God has provided the remnant to hide in during the destruction of Babylon?

Blessings, Brothers and Sisters.

I remember being challenged by Joseph to figure out the Sabbath Year. I spent two months in labor and got frustrated. “What a loser!” I kept thinking to myself as I continued to run into a brick wall.
Then, Joseph showed me II Kings 19:29. Ah Ha! There it is! That was the verse I was looking for. The 49th and 50th years are back-to-back Sabbath Years. The only time this happens is when you hit a 49th and 50th year! I punched in the number in Excel and boom…I had a chart that went from Adam to some day in the future.
Now, here is something we have never done, Observed a Sabbath Year. If we do not take the opportunity to observe this one, we have to wait 7 more years in order to observe the next one. We decided to observe this Sabbath year to see if indeed, the curses are broken and the blessings start flowing. We do not want to wait another 7 years.
And if we are right, we should see a big change in our lives. If we are wrong, we should receive a curse for adding to the scriptures. We are willing to be the test subjects.



If you watch the DVD at I show you where Yahweh says in 2 Kings 19:29 that this was a 49th year and a 50 year Jubilee. Read the verse.

You now need to prove what year Sennecharib came and attacked Hezekiah. All renown chronologist agree with the teaching of Edwin R. Thiele in His book The Mysterious Numbers of the Hebrew Kings, as well they also agree with Jack Finegan who wrote the Handbook of Biblical Chronology.

Using the Eponym and Limmu list of the Babylonian kings as well as the astronomy of Ptolemy to prove that the year Sennecharib came and attacked Hezekiah and this promise from Yahweh was given, was the 49th year and the 50th year Jubilee and was in fact 701BC and 700BC.

Now all you have to do is match this up with all known Sabbatical years as recorded in history.

The years we know to be Land Rest years and Jubilee Years are as follows. From Qadesh La Yahweh Press.

  • : A land rest year occurred in 701 BC and a Jubilee in 700 BC as written in the Bible in 2 Kings 19:29, Isaiah 37, and 2 Chronicles 32
  • : A Sabbath year occurred in 456 BC Nehemiah 8:18
  • : A Sabbath year occurred in 162 BC 1 Macc 16:14 Jos Antiq
  • : A Sabbath year occurred in 134 BC 1 Macc & Jos Antiq
  • : A Sabbath year occurred in 43 BC as issued by Gaius Julius Caeser And Jos Antiq
  • : A Sabbath year occurred in 36 BC Jos Antiq 14:16:2
  • : A Sabbath year occurred in 22 BC Jos Antiq 15:9:1
  • : A Sabbath year occurred in 42 CE Jos Antiq 18:
  • : A Sabbath year occurred in 56 CE
  • : A Sabbath year occurred in 70 CE
  • : A Sabbath year occurred in 133 CE
  • : A Sabbath year occurred in 140 CE

Each of these years is a sabbatical year. When you go from 701 BC you can only make each one fit if you count by 7. If you count by 50 none of them fit. So go ahead and try it.

The 50th year is also the first year in the next count as we are told in Lev 25:2
but we have an example each year when we count to Pentecost. Each 7th day is the weekly Sabbath. The 49th day is also the weekly Sabbath and the 50th day is always the day after the 49th so the first day of the next week Sunday is also the 50th day as we begin to count to the 7th day again.

Pentecost teaches us about the Jubilee cycle each year.

So right now March 28th 2009 we are beginning the 2nd Sabbatical year on this the first day of Aviv. This means you do not plant and you cannot harvest. You can eat what grows by itself. But you cannot take that food and put it down for the winter. This means you must have food stored away enough for two years as we are told in Lev 25.

Greetings Joe

A question came up among some of our assembly. As this is the year of land rest, how should we look at container plants? I can find no reference to such. Any in site would be appreciated.

Keep up the work, may Yah bless.

First Assembly of Yahweh
Vicksburg, Ms


Shalom Carl, good to hear from you again.

Good question.

The Jews in a Sabbatical year would sell or lease the land to an Arab. Then the land could produce and technically not belong to the good righteous Jew. I am being sarcastic.

What he has done was to skirt around the law in order not to have to obey the law. He did not obey the law on a spiritual level.

Containers, in my opinion would be a similar matter.

We are told DO NOT PLANT. DO NOT HARVEST. To me this means we do not plant. Period. We do not harvest and store away any food during this year. From Aviv to Aviv. Period. We can pick what we need which grows of itself. We cannot pick a whole pile of it and put it down.

There are two reasons for us to do this Sabbatical year and to do it without trying to find a way around it. One is this. When we are told to keep Holy the Sabbath we are told that none of our house, slave or child or stranger is to work on it. Not even the beasts are to work on it. Everything is to rest. But the earth cannot rest each week as the rest of creation does. So Yahweh adds up each of the Sabbaths in the 7 years and lets the earth rest during this time. One Sabbath each week = 52 Sabbaths X 7 Years = 364 days. So for one year the earth gets to rest just like all of creation.

2] What happens when we keep the weekly Sabbath? We learn and grow and our FAITH grows too. For many of us this will be the first time we actually will keep the Sabbatical year. We may do it wrong and we will make mistakes, but we are trying to do it correctly. This is how we build Faith. Faith that the food stored will not spoil, just like the manna never went bad on the 7 day, although it would spoil after just one day the rest of the week. It is faith and by the manna not spoiling the Israelites learned which day was the Sabbath. I am suspecting the exact same thing here. If we store our food, and Yahweh is the same today and forever, then He will be faithful and it should not spoil, if we are doing it as He has said. This requires Faith.
By planting containers, you are becoming like the Jew who still planted on his land even though it was sold to a foreigner for one year, and thus skirting the law, and your faith is not going to be exercised. Faith without works is dead. So work your faith and live.

Dear Mr. Dumond:

Some serious thought. Please forgive me if I sound obnoxious. I do not intend so.

Leavening per a dictionary:

1. Fermenting dough.
2. An agency that produces change or modification.
3. To produce bubbles or gas by an agent.

Wheat flour is not a leavening agent.

Yeast is.

Matza is wheat with no leaven therefore wheat is OK. Yeast and leaven are not.

The Lord states his commandments are not grievous.

To de-leaven in the Jewish manner is grievous.

How does one store up for a shemta year if you have to get rid of your wheat, rice, beans etc.
Egg whites cause things to rise if whipped. Is it then leavening? No.

I suspect cleaning for Passover is far easier than it is made out to be.

People store up pasta and wheat for shmeta. Do they get rid of it? After all it expands when water is added or should we get rid of water since it caused expansion or a rising?

God said get rid of leavening. Yeast is a live bacteria that grows and causes rising. Not wheat , beans, rice, eggs or water.

Thank you for your good teachings. Hope I make myself clear. I believe very little needs to leave the house. Leaven as leaven represents sin. The Lord is represented in the wheat (matza) We don’t throw the Lord out of the house. Just the sin. (Leaven.)

Thank you once again, Please take no offence if the tone is sharp. Just thoughts.

Mrs. W

you are not obnoxious. You are right.
Wheat is not thrown out. Leavening is. If the bread has leaven in it which most breads do they are to be thrown out.

During the Sabbatical year. I will be buying my year’s supply of bread after the days of Unleavened Bread putting them in the freezer. I will have to pitch them next year before DUB. I will also have to have enough Matzos for this year and next year stored now.

Joseph F Dumond

One of my sayings that I have been saying now for some time is this. If it ain’t in Lev 23 then why do you celebrate it? I do not care what religion you say you belong to. If it ain’t in Lev 23 then why do you celebrate it?

The only Holy Days of Yahweh are found in Leviticus 23. If you are keeping a holy day that is not found here, you most likely are worshiping Satan and do not know it. I would then go on to show them that the sign of Yahweh is His Sabbaths. Plural. This is His mark on us. On our Hand, the way we live, or on our forehead, the way we think. They include the Weekly Sabbath on Saturday and the Holy Days as written in Leviticus 23. We are marked by Yahweh by keeping them at the appointed time.

The mark of Satan is also on the hand or forehead. The mark of Satan then was any other holy day not found in Leviticus 23. Satan is trying to impersonate Yahweh. So Satan also has holy times that he institutes to hide the truth of Yahweh. Yahweh’s truth is revealed in each and every Holy Day as found in Leviticus 23. Satan’s sacred days reveal nothing, and hide the truth, which is the salvation plan of Yahweh. Satan’s holy days are added to the word and cannot be found in it.

Deuteronomy 4:2 You shall not add to the word which I command you, nor take from it, that you may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.

Deuteronomy 5:22 “These words the LORD spoke to all your assembly, in the mountain from the midst of the fire, the cloud, and the thick darkness, with a loud voice; and He added no more. And He wrote them on two tablets of stone and gave them to me.

Deuteronomy 12:32 “Whatever I command you, be careful to observe it; you shall not add to it nor take away from it.

Proverbs 30:6 Do not add to His words, Lest He rebuke you, and you be found a liar.

Ecclesiates 3:14 I know that whatever God does, It shall be forever. Nothing can be added to it, And nothing taken from it. God does it, that men should fear before Him.

Revelation 22:18 For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book;

Having said this I now find that I must show where Easter and Lent come from. I would rather just teach on the Holy Days. But I must show this false teaching and its source. So many cling to it and do not realize just how wrong it is. I have shown some of the origins of Easter in the teachings on Noah’s Ark found at

This is a detailed study and it shows you where the idea of the Easter Egg comes from. It is not the Rabbit, and it is not the chicken. Would you believe it is Noah`s Ark. This article also tells you what Gopher wood is. When you read this article please also read the article Under the Shadow of His Wings: The Tallit at

As different as these subjects sound they do complement each other by the explanation of being covered or Atoned for.

Another article I would like those who are new to read is the following from Truth on The Web Ministries at titled The Truth on Easter. There are many other sources you can search out to learn exactly what you have been doing in the past. But now that you are finding the truth and becoming Torah Observant you will no longer do these things which are an offence to Yahweh. And yes the keeping of easter celebrations is an offence to Yahweh, and it hides the true meaning of the death of Yahshua.
