Aviv Search Day 2

On the second day of the Aviv Search (March 12, 2013) we found more Aviv Barley in the Jordan Valley. We examined one field at Nachal Firan that was 100% Aviv. I posted photos at:

The coming new moon will be Chodesh Ha-Aviv - the New Moon of the Aviv. We will look for the new moon tonight in Israel. With 0.90% illumination and 47 minutes lagtime visibility is unlikely on Tuesday night. If the moon is not visible from Israel on Tuesday night, the Biblical year will begin on Wednesday night.

Shanah Tovah!
Happy New Year!
