Answer: A new year is a new venture. “Year” in Hebrew is “Shana,” from the word “Leshanen” (repetition).
For example, the 4 stages of the Partzuf multiplied by 3 lines equals 12. Therefore, a year is divided into 12 months, a day into 12 hours of daytime (the light of Hassadim) and 12 hours of night (the light of Hochma).
The division into 6 parts of ZA (Zeir Anpin) multiplied by 10 equals 60. Therefore, there are 60 seconds in a minute and 60 minutes in an hour.
In addition, there is a leap year in which there are 13 months. There is a special year, the 7th, and another special year, the 50th.
Everything is built on the correspondence between the phases of the Sun, the Moon, the Earth, and their mutual changes.
A calendar is a schedule of our life. Measuring only by the Sun or by the Moon does not reflect all the features of our existence, its framework, and does not clearly graph our life. Therefore, while the Christian calendar is built on the solar cycle and the Muslim calendar on the lunar cycle, the Jewish calendar is based on the Sun, Moon, and the Earth’s rotation.
Three types of calendars correspond to the three lines: left, right, and middle. The left line is the Christian calendar, the right line is Muslim, and the middle line is the Jewish calendar, which includes the Sun, Moon, and Earth.
Therefore, the Jewish calendar is the most accurate. It was calculated thousands of years ago in ancient Babylon and then tested and confirmed 2,200 years ago by Rabbi Yehuda Ha-Nasi. It hasn’t changed since then.
That is, Jewish holidays never move to the summer or the winter like they wander with the Muslims. There are also no problems with the years, like with Christians. In the Jewish calendar, the middle line is maintained, which is always stable.
Thus, everything happens according to the division into ten Sefirot: Keter, Hochma, Bina, Zeir Anpin, and Malchut. This is the way the correspondence between the planets is arranged in nature, and it works.
