Baraita on the Mystery of the Calculation of the Calendar

Resource Toolbox

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 .
