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 – rosends 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. – rosends Mar 14 '14 at 14:04

To quote Rosends (who I assume is Danno):

"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."
"Check out the link I posted for a discussion and a list (including approximate correlations -- as a secular calendar is solar and the Jewish one is an adjusted lunar, there is a general correlation but not a strict one."
