One of the popular sections on is birthday, where (among other things) you can calculate when your original and current dates of birth are according to the Jewish calendar. More than just a cute bit of trivia to be filed away with your name written in Wingdings and your address spelled backwards, your Jewish birthday is an incredibly potent spiritual opportunity.

To help you celebrate, we’ve crafted a section that’s much more than a calculator. It has nifty little subsections where you can explore the Torah perspective on celebrating your birthday, collect suggestions on how a Jewish birthday is to be marked, and even sign up for annual Jewish birthday reminder or print up a colorful personalized Jewish birthday certificate.

Twenty-six years ago today—just weeks after the passing of his beloved life partner, Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka Schneerson, of righteous memory—the Rebbe, of righteous memory, initiated a birthday campaign, encouraging everyone to celebrate their Jewish birthdays in a number of special ways. He pointed out that according to Judaism the date of your birth is a special day, when your mazal (spiritual energy) is heightened. As the anniversary of the most important moment of your life, it is a time for spiritual retrospection, celebration and good resolutions.

Do you know when your Jewish birthday is? What are you waiting for? Head over to our birthday portal, find out when your special day is, and plan a uniquely Jewish celebration.
