JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Steve Morse will speak at the Mercer County JGS at Beth El Synagogue (NJ) #general

Stephen Cohen

The Mercer County Jewish Genealogical Society at Beth El Synagogue (East Windsor,
New Jersey) presents

"The Jewish Calendar Demystified" a talk by Dr. Stephen Morse

The Jewish calendar is important to historians and genealogists because Jewish
vital records use the Jewish dates. This includes not only birth, marriage, and
death certificates, but tombstone inscriptions as well. This talk presents the
Jewish calendar in an easy-to-understand and sometimes tongue-in-cheek fashion as
seen through the eyes of Adam and Eve. But in spite of the levity, the details
presented are factual. The aim is not to make you an expert in calculating Jewish
dates (we have programs to do that) but rather to give you an appreciation for what
is involved in such calculations.
