Jewish Months

חודשים

Introduction
The Hebrew Calendar is used today primarily for religious observance. The date of Jewish Holidays follows this calendar.

Like the Gregorian Calendar used through most of the world today, there are 12 Hebrew months. However, because the Hebrew months do not total 365 days, every few years an additional month of אֲדָר (adar) (אֲדָר) is added to keep Passover in the Spring.
