I understand that Jewish religion has two calendars; one is Civil for Kings, childbirth, contracts etc. and second for festivals.

what are the months of these calendars and how they are related datewise with current Christian calendar?

There are different moments for the computing of the beginning of the year and for reckoning years (as in X years of a ruler's kingship or the celebration of the new year for the trees) but the months are the same for both. jewfaq.org/calendar.htm – Danno Mar 14 '14 at 10:22
I read somewhere that months are same. So what are the months and their co-relation with Christian calendar? – user426 Mar 14 '14 at 10:31
Where did you learn that there are these two separate calendars? – Double AA Mar 14 '14 at 13:24
@Danno, That qualifies as an answer. – Yitzchak Mar 14 '14 at 14:00
@Yitzchak though this is not the place to have this conversation, to my mind this qualifies as a downvote worthy request which doesn't reflect the basic research expected of a good question. So I won't give the simple google search as an answer. – Danno Mar 14 '14 at 14:04
