Aviv Team Ready to Go!

Karaite Korner Newsletter #611

Aviv Team Ready to Go

The Aviv Search is rapidly approaching at the end of next week (Feb 28 and March 2). This will be the first Aviv Search in 23 years that I will not be participating in. I am still working in China and have decided to sit this one out. However, the Aviv team will include people with years of experience who have my full trust and confidence. 

This year's search will be a challenge, because it is unlikely they will find Aviv during the first search. It is always more difficult to "prove a negative," so not finding Aviv requires a great deal more work than finding it. The Aviv team will search intensively in "Kasaam Alley" along the border of Palestinian-Occupied Gaza, an area regularly bombarded by indiscriminate Arab rocket attacks. They need our help to pay for rental cars, gas (at $8.10 a gallon!) and other related expenses. Please consider supporting the Aviv Search with a tax-deductible donation by clicking on the donate button at: (on the right-hand side it says "Aviv Search 2014")

You can also send a check made out to "Makor Hebrew Foundation" to POB 535579, Arlington TX 75053 or called Dev to make a tax-deductible donation over the phone at: 682-552-5772.

Earlier this week, I spoke with Jono Vandor about this year's Aviv Search and other exciting topics on his Truth2U radio program. You can listen online at:

I also recently posted on my blog about my adventures in Southeast Asia, including what I learned about Yehovah from a Laotian elephant (no, that's not a joke!):

12th month information and Aviv search dates

Based on observers who have reported in, the new moon was NOT seen in Israel due to clouds.

Unless we get more reports telling us it was or was not sighted, the new moon of the Twelfth Biblical Month will be February 1, 2014 at sunset by default.

Thanks to everyone named and unnamed who are so faithful to Yehovah's instructions! We depend on you so much!!

The Aviv search will be on the 27th and 28th of February 2014 with a new moon sighting on March 2, 2014. As much as we would all LOVE to go to Israel, we all cannot. You can still take part in this most important event by contributing to help the Aviv search happen! 
You can donate through donate buttons on
And also through Nehemia's foundation
