The Biblical calendar has been a hotly debated topic among many in the messianic movement. We do not desire to enter these debates, but we also understand the importance of keeping the feasts on the days appointed by YHVH.
Due to the many opinions and the confusion that often surrounds this topic, a few of the men in our group decided to cast lots before YHVH after praying and fasting for several days. The lot came up for the Zadok/Enochian calendar with unbelievable odds, so that is what we are currently observing as a group. If anyone is interested in joining us for the feast days, please feel free to Contact Us for more information.
Below is a link to a free printable calendar that we have compiled for anyone to print and share.
Unlike many Zadok calendars available online, I have spent the time to present the information in the standardized Gregorian format so it is easy to reference for daily use. We plan on having these printed as wall calendars with the weekly Torah portions and photos added.

As I set out to make this calendar I wasn’t quite sure what I was getting into. I had been holding to a “sighting” method since coming to Torah to determine the months and to set the Feast schedule. I spent a great deal of time researching the moon and tracking its phases and movements. What I found is that the moon is fairly difficult to understand. It wanders north and south, up and down, and it is constantly falling behind the sun by roughly 13.2 degrees a day.
Even though I doubted that I would ever really understand the moon and its movements, I relied on a belief that Yah’s calendar system had to be simple enough for His people to follow.
What I found while researching the Zadok calendar is that it is by far the simplest. It is perfectly divisible by seven, it uses both the sun and the moon as witnesses, and it is in line with the priestly order that is laid out in 1 Chronicles 24.
Trust me, at first I had a hard time understanding it and even accepting it myself. But after seeing the results of the lot we cast, I could no longer simply ignore it. So after spending almost 3 years with this calendar, learning how it functions; how it ties into Scripture, the book of Enoch and Jubilees; and by observing the days the Father commanded according to it reckoning, I am fairly convinced that this as close as we can get to the calendar that the ancient Hebrews were keeping prior to the captivity.
