Re: Dates of Simchat Torah 1866 #general

Hi Toby,
Simchat Torah is celebrated on Tishrei 23rd outside the land of Israel. Brest-Litovsk was in the Russian Empire in 1866 and Russia adopted the Gregorian calendar only in 1918. Therefore, two possible dates correspond to this event:
- October 2, 1866 according to the Gregorian calendar
- September 19, 1866 according to the Julian calendar used in Brest in those times.
