When is Rosh Hashanah in 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020?

When is Rosh Hashanah in 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020?


Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, falls on the Hebrew calendar dates of 1 and 2 Tishrei. Here are the coinciding secular dates for the upcoming years:

2016:   October 2 (at sundown) - 4

2017:   September 20 (at sundown) - 22

2018:   September 9 (at sundown) - 11

2019:   September 29 (at sundown) - October 1

2020:   September 18 (at sundown) - 20

Note: The Jewish calendar date begins at sundown of the night beforehand. Thus all holiday observances begin at sundown on the secular dates listed, with the following day being the first full day of the holiday. Jewish calendar dates conclude at nightfall.

Holidays are observed according to the time of the location where one finds oneself, not according to Israel time. Staff

Rosh Hashanah at sundown?
I've been curious.... I know Rosh Hashanah begins at sundown of the day before, but is that sundown here in the US (or anywhere) or sundown in Israel? They are several hours different than the US, so that's why I ask because it puts a whole different time on it depending on where the sundown is observed. I'm a little confused on this so clarification would be nice. Thanks. :)

Rosh Hashanah starts
You should comment here:
This year Rosh Hashanah represents the beginning of a "Shmita" year - that's the end of a seven-year cycle when land is left idle, debts are forgiven, and you "open your heart" to the unfortunate.

I just begin to know that my B-Day, September 4, 2013, is the first day of Nisan, Praying that G-d will give me wisdom to know more, the Jewish Sabbath rest and Holidays. This is my first time to got interested with Jewish holidays.

Rosh Hashanah
Why does Rosh Hashanah fall out of the correct season should it not fall after the fall equinox. Leviticus 23:4 says they shall be proclaimed in their seasons (the feasts of the L_rd) Is there something in the Hebrew that I don't understand?

RE: Curious to see if there is a correlation
Rosh Hashanah in 1787 was on the 13th and 14th of September. In 1783 it was on the 22nd and 23rd of September.
