Ninth Month is Kislev

Total visits: 7509


Kislev is the ninth month of Biblical calendar. The constellation corresponding to the month is Sagittarius or bow, rainbow - if translated literally from Biblical language. They reflect the symbols of light fighting against darkness. As far as Kislev has both many sunny and rainy days, it is especially often that the rainbow appears on the sky during the month. As it is known, the very first rainbow began to shine precisely on Kislev in the sky, when G-d sent it to Noah as a sign of His mercy after the World-Wide Flood ceased. Here is what is written about it in Tora (Bereshit 9:12-13): "And God said: This is the sign of the covenant, which I am placing between Me and between you, and between every living soul that is with you, for everlasting generations. My rainbow I have placed in the cloud, and it shall be for a sign of a covenant between Myself and the earth.".

In the beginning of the month of Kislev heralds were in a hurry from Jerusalem to all the ends of the diaspora with the message about Rosh-Hodesh (new month beginning - Biblical language translation) dates. Coz on this month the celebration of Hanuka starts, as it was founded by Sages. The celebration lasts eight days and also embodies the fighting and the victory of light over the darkness.
