 Shabbat

"Remember the day of Shabbat, to keep it holy. Pursue all your labor for six days, and do all your "Melachah" (the term "Melachah" to be defined in Item 3, below). But the seventh day is Shabbat to the L-rd your G-d; On it you may do no "Melachah," neither you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor the stranger who is within your gates. For in six days G-d made the heavens and the earth, the sea and everything that is within it; And he rested on the seventh day; Therefore, G-d did bless the day of Shabbat and He made it holy." (Shemot 19: 8-11; the Shabbat Command as recorded in the Shemot version of the Ten Commandments)

"Guard the Day of Shabbat to keep it holy, as the L-rd your G-d has commanded. Pursue all your labor for six days, and do all your "Melachah." But the seventh day is Shabbat for the L-rd your G-d; Do no "Melachah" - not you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your ox or donkey or any of your cattle, nor the stranger who resides within your gates, in order that your male and female servants shall rest, as you rest. And you shall remember that you were a slave in the Land of Egypt, and the L-rd your G-d took you out from there with a strong hand and an outstretched arm; Therefore, did the L-rd your G-d command you to observe the Day of Shabbat." (Devarim 5: 12-15; the Shabbat Command as recorded in the Devarim version of the Ten Commandments.

Shmuel I Samuel


As mentioned above, a year is a solar dependent unit of time. It is the period of time it takes the sun to go through a complete cycle of the Zodiac or the time it takes for the sun to repeat the same point in its orbit. A solar month is really just 1/12th of this period of time. A solar month has in it of itself has no specific tie to any cycle of any celestial body.    Why do we maintain two different systems of time calculation?
