Baraita On the Mystery of the Calculation of the Calendar

A Baraita cited in the Talmud (R. H. 20b). Since special care was taken to keep it secret, it has not been preserved; but it is probable that the BARAITA OF SAMUEL incorporated a considerable portion of it. The Talmud citation from this Baraita has completely puzzled the commentators, as well as modern students of the Jewish calendar; and despite many attempts to explain it, it remains obscure. Compare Calendar.
