Description

Calendar- and almanac-making manuals were commonly used to calculate the solar and lunar Jewish calendar. In the fourth century CE, a fixed calendar was established based on astronomical and mathematical calculations. This calendar is still used, and is based on a 19-year cycle, which allows the lunar Jewish months to come into alignment with the solar Gregorian calendar.
