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.

Does this years 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. ? Reply

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

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. :) Reply

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? Reply

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. Reply

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? Reply

Jewish Year This year will be the Hebrew year of 5770 in case anyone wants to know - there is also a Hebrew date 'calculator' on the Internet that converts secular dates to Hebrew ones (month, day, and year). Reply

Incorrect Dates The dates for 2008 through 2010 are inconsistent with the description, the 3 date range includes the secular calendar night before. For example, Rosh Hashanah lasts for 2 days beginning at sundown on September 18, 2009 and ending at sundown on Spetember 20, 2009.

I didn't verify the dates listed on the other years, but the years with 3 day ranges are inconsistent with the description indicating that the night beforehand is not included. Reply
