Yom Kippur Moons Comparison

Here is the image of the moon as I saw it on the eve of the 8th day of the 7th lunar month, on 09/27/2017 @ 7:53 PDT. Yes, the picture was taken during conjunction. 

As you can see, the moon is exactly half, which constitutes Yom Kippur Moed. There is simply no other way to interpret this. Yom Kippur is a moed and Genesis 1:14 states that Sun and Moon are for moedim (plural, meaning for all moedim). This is why Yom Kippur falls on the half-moon phase.

And this is the Yom Kippur Day moon, 09/28/2017 @6:27 PDT. As you can see, moon is still exactly half.

And this is the picture of the moon on the eve of traditional Yom Kippur, 09/29/2017 @ 7:53 PDT (yes, same time for comparison). 

As you can see, the moon is clearly more than half and therefore out of phase and therefore CAN'T constitute a Moed. There is no way to tell what day it is by just looking at this moon. We need moon phases to define moedim.

Now that you have seen both moons, please ask yourself, which one is obviously the correct one? Yes, the half-moon, because it is a phase and therefore a moed.

Also, ask yourself if we determine the new moon by the moon, and Passover and Sukkot fall on Full moon and 3rd quarter moon,  why not Yom Kippur. It is obvious. You have to be blind not to see what nature and, therefore, God is trying to communicate to you!

Please note that in the 7th month the phases fall exactly on the right days, so you can use the moon to determine the moedim as opposed to using calculated values to determine it as we do in the 1st month for example.

Happy Day of Atonement! Happy Yom Kippur!

Dear readers,

I wanted to wish you easy and restful Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement).

As I have stated on my blog numerous times, correct date of Yom Kippur is the 8th of the 7th lunar month, not 10th of the 7th lunar month. This means that Yom Kippur begins tonight at sunset, 09/27/2017.

Torah only commands us to humble our souls, which means that people who can't fast should do something else, like not to watch TV or have any entertainment on this day. Obviously, infants should also eat and drink as they can't be without food and water. 

 YLT Lv 16:31 it is to you a sabbath of rest, and ye have humbled yourselves--a statute age-during.

So, as you can see, we are commanded to rest on Yom Kippur, which means that our humbling of the soul must not be too harsh so that we can rest and enjoy our Shabbat. Yom Kippur is the Shabbat obviously.

I will post Yom Kippur Moon pictures for comparison in a few days so that you could judge by yourself.

Once again, have an easy and restful Yom Kippur and may all your sins be absolved from your souls!

Happy Day of the Blast! Happy Yom Teruah!

Dear readers,

I wanted to wish you a restful Day of the Blast. Today is not only Shabbat and 1st of the 7th month but it is also a day of Trumpets and Shofar. We are commanded to blow the Tabernacle Silver Trumpets to remind us about gathering at Mt. Sinai.

Status Update: First phase of my CNIP is complete.

Dear readers,

I wanted to let you know that I have released my CNIP files for download. Please visit my NIP web site to download the files.

While I am still working on these files, they are already usable and you should definitely check it out. For example, you can filter words by the Strong numbers or pronunciation.

Coming up is full traditional morphology for MT. This will let to do advanced grammatical analysis of MT on the computer.

Last phase of the project is completed MLT which will make my CNIP incredibly useful in Torah interpretation.

P.S. Russian version of CNIP is available here:

Full Moon 09/04/2017

I took this picture @ 9:58 PM PDT on 09/04/2017. As you can see, the Moon is a perfect circle. This month the moon cycle is long enough so that all phases align perfectly. The next month (7th month) will be the same. What I am wondering about is the 1st month...
