This paper was written in order for me to have a calendar of all the events recorded in the Torah, Prophets, Writings, and Nazarean Codicil, for every day of the year. From this calendar many amazing events and relationships were exposed.

 

The many events of Passover, for example, included the Pesach celebrated by Avraham, 400 years before the giving of the Torah!

 

That both Temples were started on the same day, and destroyed on the same day.

 

And many more …

 

The Calendar for Gentile Kings

 

The First Day of Tishri is Rosh HaShanah for the following five matters[1]:

 

1. For Gentile Kings - They count their reigns from the First of Tishri, such that even if a King began his reign at the end of Elul, once Tishri began, it would be considered as the Second Year of his reign.

 

2. The Shmita cycle and the yovel cycle begin – With the beginning of the month of Tishri in a Shmita or yovel year, it is forbidden by the Torah to plow or plant in the land of Israel.

 

3. Years[2] – The first of Tishri is regarded as the new year for counting years.

 

4. For Planting Trees – The produce of fruit trees is forbidden as orlah for the first three years after the tree is planted. If a tree is planted more than forty-four days before the first of tishri, then the first of Tishri marks the beginning of the second year of the tree’s life.

 

5. For Produce – The first of Tishri is regarded as the beginning of the year as regards the separation of Terumot and Ma’asrot from produce.

 

The Festival Calendar and for Jewish Kings[3]

 

The First Day of Nisan is Rosh HaShanah for the following five matters[4]:

 

1. Kings of Israel - They count their reigns from the First of Nisan, such that even if a King began his reign at the end of Adar, once Nisan began, it would be considered as the Second Year of his reign.

 

2. Pilgrim Festivals - The Festival which occurs in Nisan, namely Pesach, is considered the First of the three Pilgrim Festivals: Pesach, Shavuot, Succoth.

 

3. Months - Nisan is considered the first of the months. The Torah refers to other months as second, third,…twelfth with reference to Nisan.

 

4. Leap Years - The Court may proclaim a "Leap Year" only until the first of Nisan. Once that date has arrived, the time for "Leaping" has "Leapt"

 

5. Donation of Shekalim - All Communal Sacrifices brought from this day forward are paid from the shekalim collected in the Current Year; last year's shekalim are no longer used for this purpose.
