From Friday night (6th day) to Sabbath evening(7th day) marks the First Day of Yahweh's New Year!! (Exodus 12:1) Have a great day and look forward now to Passover which starts on the evening of the 14th day(April 10th-11th) of Yahweh's month!(Exodus 12:6) Don't forget to choose YOUR lamb on the 10th day(April 5th- 6th) of this new month(Exodus 12:3)...we will choose Yahshua the Messiah(I Peter 1:19) ~ We hope you do too! We will be diligently continuing to remove the leaven from our home(origin of Spring Cleaning!) before Passover, both physically and spiritually.( I Corinthians 5:8) This will be a year to remember.....Let us use it to draw close to Yahweh and do His will.
Here is a recipe that would be fun and instructional for the children:
Yahweh’s New Year is tomorrow! Here is a nice recipe for observing Yahweh’s New Year! I would use light green food coloring to tint.
2 Tablespoons of pearl barley. 5 cups water.
Zest and juice of 1/2 lemon, 2-2/3 cups sugar.
Pinch of cream of tartar. Lightly oil baking sheet.
Put the pearl barley in a saucepan with 1-1/4 cups
of the cold water and bring to a boil.
Drain and rinse under cold running water.
Put the barley back in the pan with the remaining
cold water and the lemon rind. Bring to a boil again,
cover and simmer about 2 hours. Strain the barley
liquid into a measuring cup and add the lemon juice
and enough cold water to make 2 -1/2 cups.
Put the sugar, cream of tartar and barley water
in a large heavy saucepan and heat gently until
the sugar is dissolved, stirring continuously.
Bring to a boil and boil to 290 degrees.
Remove the pan from the heat and quickly pour
the syrup onto the prepared baking sheet.
Tilt the sheet to spread it evenly. Leave to cool a little.
As soon as the barley sugar is firm enough to
handle, cut it into strips with scissors and twist
each strip. Place on a board to finish cooling.
The outside cools quicker than the middle, so
work from both sides toward the middle, not
straight from one side to the other. Wrap in twists
of clear wrap and store in a glass jar with an airtight stopper.

Karaite Korner Newsletter #373Aviv Found! On Thursday March 26, 2009 we found Aviv Barley in two fields in the Jordan Valley, several kilometers south of Beth Shean. Samplings from these plots of barley were between 70% and 90% Aviv or beyond. Much of the barley we found had ripened past the stage of Aviv. Based on this there will definitely be sufficient quantities of barley that will be harvest-ready in two weeks time. Therefore, the upcoming new moon this Friday night will begin the Month of the Aviv and the new biblical year. Chag HaMatzot (the Feast of Unleavened Bread) will begin on April 10 at sunset and continue until April 17 at sunset. Photographs of this year's Aviv taken by CB Newman are posted at:http://www.karaite-korner.org/aviv/2009/The following people participated in today's Aviv Search:Nehemia Gordon, Ruthanne Koch, Devorah Gordon, Dina Marcus, Daniel Pitrone, Baruch ben Hosea, Adam Kinghorn, Bruce Brill, Larry Moldaur, Valerie Knowles, Miri Burgin, C. B. Newman, and Randy Boer. We will examine the barley in the northern Negev tomorrow. However, our findings so far are adequate to determine that the upcoming new moon will begin the new biblical year. Nehemia Gordonand Ruthanne Koch
