Happy New Year

I wish a happy new year to all Jewish RCGroups members, and my best wishes for a happy, healthy and prosperous new year (Jewish new year starts this coming Sunday evening) for every living soul on this planet.


Among some of the happy customs we Jews celebrate at this time of year, is to dip an apple in honey, to symbolize a sweet year.

I see this is year 5,773. Is there a short version of how that number was arrived at? For example, did some Jewish scholar in the Christian year 1,000BC do a calculation?

Happy new year, and I like your customs!

Yes! Good guess BF48.

The Jewish calendar's epoch (reference date), 1 Tishrei 1 AM, is equivalent to Monday, 7 October 3761 BCE in the proleptic Julian calendar, the equivalent tabular date (same daylight period) and is about one year before the traditional Jewish date of Creation on 25 Elul AM 1, based upon the Seder Olam Rabbah of Rabbi Yossi ben Halafta, a 2nd century CE sage.[28] Thus, adding 3760 before Rosh Hashanah or 3761 after to a Julian or Gregorian year number after 1 CE will yield the Hebrew year. For earlier years there may be a discrepancy (see: Missing years (Jewish calendar)).
