Leap Year Q&A

Was Passover Celebrated Late this Year?
It seems that this year’s holiday of Passover was much later in the year than it was last year. What exactly happened to delay the holiday of Passover this year?
Since Biblical times the months and years of the Jewish calendar have been established by the cycles of the moon and the sun. Torah law prescribes that the months follow closely the course of the moon, from its birth each month to the next New Moon.
