When is Rosh Hashanah in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017?

When is Rosh Hashanah in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017?


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:

2014:   September 24 (at sundown) - 26

2015:   September 13 (at sundown) - 15

2016:   October 2 (at sundown) - 4

2017:   September 20 (at sundown) - 22

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.

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.

Curious to see if there is a correlation
The US Constitution was signed 17 Sep 1787. Was this date on Rosh Hashanah for that year too? I would also like to know the date of Rosh Hashanah in 1827. Is there a way to find out?

Rosh Hashana cannot be on Sunday, Wednesday, or Friday. All other days are fair game.
