2022 Jewish Calendar Cheat Sheet

 

Since navigating the Jewish calendar is more complicated than sifting through a Diner Menu, we created a cheat sheet. We're about to enter the year 5273 - Can you believe it?! 

Each year the Jewish calendar shifts a little bit because it is lunisolar, which means the calendar originally employed a new crescent moon which an additional month normally added every two or three years to correct for the difference between the twelve-month lunar year and the solar year. If it sounds like some confusing astrology to you, you’re not alone. Just know that the Jewish or Hebrew calendar dictates the schedule for both holidays and torah readings and will likely confuse you around September each year.

Screenshot it, print it, put it on your fridge or door! Whatever it takes to prevent those agonizing conversations and debates with relatives who swear Hanukkah falls in February this year!

Some extra background on the Jewish Calendar (incase you like that sorta thing):

Each year, Jews around the world scuttle in confusion around the two competing calendars that dictate their schedules. There’s the Gregorian calendar, which was instituted in the year 1582 and remains the one that the Western World subscribes to. Think of this as the “work” calendar or the “school” calendar. Then, there’s the Jewish, or Hebrew calendar, which tells us whether Hanukkah’s going to be closer to Thanksgiving or Independence Day (Kidding, but not really).
