A lunar calendar is a calendar that is based on cycles of the lunar phases. Because there are slightly more than twelve lunations (synodic months) in a solar year, the period of 12 lunar months (354.37 days) is sometimes referred to as a lunar year. The average length of the synodic month is 29.530589 days. Thus it is convenient if months are in general alternately 29 and 30 days. So there are 12 to 13 moons in a year. Or an average of 12.369 moons in a year. The Moon orbits the earth every 27.3 Earth days and turns 10920.8 km at the equator every 27.3 days. This equates to a speed of 400 km/h. The Earth turns at 100 times the rate and travels 40,000 km per rotation. Conversely the Sun is 400 times larger than the Moon and 400 times further away from Earth,

The Gregorian calendar that most of the world uses is based on the sun. On the Gregorian calendar, every 4 years we have a leap year where we add an extra day to keep everything in sync.

But the Hebrew calendar is based on both the sun and the moon. The sun determines the years and the moon determines the month. On the Jewish calendar an entire month is added 7 times over a 19 yr period to keep everything in sync.

According to the Hebrew calendar and the Torah, the first full moon of the religious year is the moon of Passover. The Hebrew word for “The Passover” is “HaPesach”.

The numerical value of this word in Hebrew is 153. And it just so happens the sq root of 153 the first full moon of the 1st month just happens to be 12.369 the avg of the number of moons in a year!

This is on example of many things that can be learned, explored and taught with this art piece called “The Passover”.
