Nehemia talks with Dev Arndt-Daniel about the upcoming new moon sighting of Yom Teruah on September 14, 2015. Will the moon be visible making Yom Teruah begin that evening or will it begin the following evening? They also talk about Nehemia's new podcast series "Hebrew Voices."
The photo above is of the "full" moon over Fremont Indian State Park, Utah. In contrast, the "new" moon marking Yom Teruah is the first sliver visible on the Western horizon after the moon was not visible for 1.5 or more days.
