What are the Times for each Biblical New Moon or Rosh Chodesh?
Biblical New Year is only in the Spring, around the Spring Equinox, here is the biblical passage that sets the New Year at Spring time, "This month (Aviv) shall be unto you the beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year to you," Exodus 12:2.
First off, this information is NOT according to Rabbinical
Judaism, but instead, it is according to the strict adherence to Biblical Judaism that goes by actual observance of the celestial bodies. Rabbinical Judaism's determinations of New Moons and the Jewish New Year is based on
math and traditions and not purely on observance. Likewise, in regards to the Rabbinical New Year, they are always seven months too late based on several foolish rabbinical teachings.
Secondly, because Moshe (Moses) led the people out of Mitzraim (Egypt) into the wilderness and after receiving the Torah (HaShem's instructions) he also intended to lead the people to the "Land of Canaan." However, Moshe never led Yisrael into Eretz Yisrael, but only to the border of it. Now, even though Moshe never entered into Eretz Yisrael himself, the determining of New Moons must be determined by what is observed in Eretz Yisrael, not from any other place on the globe.
This fact must be pointed out, because if you are in another nation or time zone, you may not get the correct date for the biblical feasts. This can lead you into transgression by not observing the holidays on the correct day.
Below, in the white box, are the times of the scientific "New Moons" for the years 2013 - 2014, these times are NOT according to the biblical times of when a New Month should begin, they are merely the times when the celestial bodies (the sun and moon) are together. These times are in U.T. Time. From there we can determine when the biblical feasts can actually take place...

Rosh Chodesh & Rosh HaShanah:

THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE OF THE MEFACHADIM
These are the biblical dates of each New Year and every Rosh Chodesh up to the year 2018.
These are the dates for the "day" times, not the previous nights when the 24 hour period begins. For the way the Jewish calendar works is that the 24 hour time span goes from sunset to sunset.
These times are also set if one were to be standing in Jerusalem, not anywhere else on earth. For all calculations must be based from Jerusalem.
3-13 Rosh HaShanah
9-6 Yom Teru'ah
4-1 Rosh HaShanah
9-25 Yom Teru'ah
3-21 Rosh HaShanah
9-14 Yom Teru'ah
3-10 Rosh HaShanah
9-2 Yom Teru'ah
3-29 Rosh HaShanah
9-21 Yom Teru'ah
3-18 Rosh HaShanah
On a Different Note....
Why is it an odd thing that on some days when the astronomical "New Moon" takes place that the moon sets before the sun and, thus, you will never see the sliver of the moon after sunset? It is because the distance of the sun from the earth is longer or further than the moon's distance.... This coming seventh month on 9/5/2013 is a good example...
I made a picture to show people this example, yet regardless of "when" the moon will set on Sept 5, I will still observe Yom Teru'ah (the first day of the seventh month) in the evening of Sept 5th, because the literal "renewing" will take place on the 5th. I bring this up because some sects of Judaism "wait" to see the sliver or crescent of the moon first before calling a Rosh Chodesh. However, there is NO biblical reference that indicates, nor commands that we are to literally observe the crescent or sliver before calling a Rosh Chodesh. On the contrary, in 1 Samuel 20:5, we see that the monarchy and David called the Rosh Chodesh before the astronimical New Moon ever took place. Here is that passage....
" And David said unto Jonathan: 'Behold, to-morrow is the new moon, when I should sit with the king to eat; so let me go, that I may hide myself in the field unto the third day at even."
Here is the picture....
One reason for bringing this up is this:
The Karaite sect of Judaism goes by literal observance of the sliver or crescent of the moon before calling a Rosh Chodesh, even though there is no biblical reference to this custom. Because of this, for the late summer feast of Yom Teru'ah, they will observe Yom Teru'ah a day later, being Sept 7 and not the 6th. The moon can be seen in the evening of the 6th, because the moon will set after sunset on the 6th, but not on the 5th, the actual day of the astronomical N.M. due to our angle as I show in the picture above.
Why is this important to note:
Because if this feast is COMMANDED to be observed on a certain day, one will transgress if observed on the wrong day. This is why it is so important to get these dates right. Furthermore, if the first day of the seventh month (being an important month) is messed up, you also will sin for Yom Kippur and Succoth as well.
In rabbinical Judaism, which is not Judaism, they will actually observe Yom Teru'ah (for 2013) before and on the astronomical New Moon. This is because they follow the teachings of wicked rabbis who taught that we shouldn't have Yom Kippur the day prior to a Sabbath, nor the day right after the Sabbath. Thus, they willfully move the days around in order to avoid this very unbiblical custom.
So, because the 10th (Yom Kippur) would naturally falls on the day right after the Sabbath, they moved Y.K. back to the Sabbath itself, just so that they can eat on the first day of the week. They did this because according to biblical law one is not allowed to cook on the Sabbath, so if one does not prepare enough food for the Sabbath leading into Yom Kippur, they will really starve. Thus, for comfort, they deliberately changed the day. This is totally unbiblical and vile in the eyes of Yhwh.
