שיעורי טקסט Harav Yaakov Medan "This Month Shall Be for You..." Jewish Dates A transition to counting the days of the month, the names of the months, and the years in numerical terms, and a simultaneous transition to a system that counts years and months back to the Exodus is not wildly unrealistic and impractical. It is possible to do.
