Jewish Holiday Dates: The Jewish calendar is based on three astronomical phenomena: the rotation of the Earth about its axis (a day); the revolution of the moon about the Earth (a month); and the revolution of the Earth about the sun (a year). The civil calendar used by most of the world does not have any correlation between the moon cycles and the month, arbitrarily setting the length of months to 28, 30 or 31 days. So, the Jewish holidays fall on a different civil calendar date each year.
