Shalom, everyone! The following are the full moons along with their names and the arrival dates and times in the Northern Hemisphere for the 2018-2019 lunar year. Just a reminder that on the ecclesiastical lunar calendar, the full moon is the “new moon” or “Rosh Chodesh,” and is the “head of the month,” or “beginning of the month.” Contrary to the most widely accepted teaching, the event of Rosh Chodesh was triggered by the sighting of the full moon, when the moon shines at its brightest, not the dark moon nor the first visible waxing crescent moon (FVC). Rosh Chodesh is one of the mo’edim YAH commanded B’nei Yisrael to celebrate as a time of recognition. In the Book of Numbers, YAH says to Moshe (Moses):

“Also in the day of your gladness, and in your appointed seasons, and in your new moons, ye shall blow with the trumpets over your burnt-offerings, and over the sacrifices of your peace-offerings; and they shall be to you for a memorial before your God: I am the LORD your God.'” ~ Numbers 10:10
