Jewish Year Wheel graphic

Unlike the calendar we use on a daily basis, which is a solar calendar, the Jewish calendar is tied to the moon's cycles. The Jewish year loses about 11 days relative to the solar calendar every year, but makes up for it by adding a month every two or three years. As a result, Jewish holidays don't always occur on the same day each year, but they always fall within the same month or two.

View the links in the "Holiday Resource" section to the left for more information on Jewish holidays and for information on CKAF events related to those holidays.
