The Thinking Jew Podcast: Ep. 61 The Secret of the Jewish Leap Year. By Rabbi Moshe Segal

The Jewish calendar is a lunisolar calendar, meaning it aligns with the cycles of both the sun and the moon.  Since the solar year is 11 days longer than the lunar year, every few years (occurring 7 times in every 19 years) we add an extra month to the year, to align these two calendars.  This year is a leap year, and we recently began the Jewish month of Adar Aleph, the first Adar.

Join me in this fascinating episode as we explore a deeper perspective on the Jewish leap year.  What does the Sun represent in Jewish thought? What is the moon?  Is there a significance to aligning the sun and the moon? Why does the month of Adar get repeated? Can we choose a different month?

Uncover the deeper side of the Jewish leap year and gain a more meaningful understanding of this beautiful time period that we’re going through.

Happy Listening!

Rabbi Moshe
