2022 Feast Dates

Here are the Gregorian dates for the Biblical Feasts in 2022.
Feast dates are based on the Jewish (Hillel) calendar.
All observances except Passover begin the prior evening.

March 17, 2022
(Purim is not one of the Appointed Times in Torah)

This happened on the thirteenth day of Adar and on the fourteenth day they rested, making it a day of feasting and gladness. …The Jews established and took upon themselves, upon their descendants, and upon all who joined with them, that they would commemorate these two days in the way prescribed and at the appointed time every year. These days should be remembered and observed in every generation by every family and in every province and every city.
(Esther 9:17,27-28 TLV)

End of the Day, April 15, 2022

During the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month in the evening, is Adonai’s Passover.
(Leviticus 23:5 TLV)

Note: The traditional time to begin Passover is in the evening at the end of the day. Some congregations observe it on the prior evening. For a more detailed explanation, go here.

Unleavened Bread
April 16 – April 22, 2022

On the fifteenth day of the same month is the Feast of Matzot to Adonai. For seven days you are to eat matzah. On the first day you are to have a holy convocation and you should do no regular work. Instead you are to present an offering made by fire to Adonai for seven days. On the seventh day is a holy convocation, when you are to do no regular work.
(Leviticus 23:6-8 TLV)

First Fruits
April 17, 2022

When you have come into the land which I give to you, and reap its harvest, then you are to bring the omer of the firstfruits of your harvest to the kohen. He is to wave the omer before Adonai, to be accepted for you. On the morrow after the Shabbat, the kohen is to wave it.
(Leviticus 23:10-11 TLV)

June 5, 2022

Then you are to count from the morrow after the Shabbat, from the day that you brought the omer of the wave offering, seven complete Shabbatot. Until the morrow after the seventh Shabbat you are to count fifty days, and then present a new grain offering to Adonai.
(Leviticus 23:15-16 TLV)

Yom Teruah
September 26, 2022

In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you are to have a Shabbat rest, a memorial of blowing (shofarot), a holy convocation. You are to do no regular work, and you are to present an offering made by fire to Adonai.
(Leviticus 23:24-25 TLV)

Yom Kippur
October 5, 2022

The tenth day of this seventh month is Yom Kippur, a holy convocation to you, so you are to afflict yourselves. You are to bring an offering made by fire to Adonai. You are not to do any kind of work on that set day, for it is Yom Kippur, to make atonement for you before Adonai your God.
(Leviticus 23:27-28 TLV)

Sukkot and Shemini Atzeret
October 10 – October 17, 2022

On the fifteenth day of this seventh month is the Feast of Sukkot, for seven days to Adonai. On the first day there is to be a holy convocation—you are to do no laborious work. For seven days you are to bring an offering by fire to Adonai.
(Leviticus 23:34-36 TLV)

The eighth day will be a holy convocation to you, and you are to bring an offering by fire to Adonai. It is a solemn assembly—you should do no laborious work.
(Leviticus 23:36 TLV)

December 19 – December 26, 2022
(Hanukkah is not one of the Appointed Times in Torah)

Then Judas and his brothers and all the assembly of Israel determined that every year at that season the days of the dedication of the altar should be observed with gladness and joy for eight days, beginning with the twenty-fifth day of the month Kislev.
(1 Maccabees 4:59 ESV)

  1. I’m wondering why the star of Remphan is added as the symbol of this page when shared?
    Great to see messianic believers following our Father’s Moadim!

    • Thanks. It isn’t the star of Remphan. It is a Star of David, a symbol of the land of Israel where these Feasts originated. If that bothers you, though, you could just consider it a snowflake. They always have six points.

  2. sory to inform you all that all those feast stated are not God’s feast. God gave Israel 7 Feast, Passover, Unleaven bread, first fruits, Feast of weeks, Trumpets, Atonememt, Booths, the rest are man made

    • they are called God’s feast days.
      Jesus fulfilled the spring feasts
      Moses told the people to take the lamb into there home for 4 days then they shall kill it. Jesus came into Jerusalem riding on a colt and was accepted by the people for 4 days then killed. he rose on first fruits during the feast of unleavened bread and gave the holy spirit on pentecost.
      so he will fulfill the Fall feast when he comes back. tabernacle God with us. Day of atonement he will show his wounds. oh my we did kill the Messiah. in bible Jesus was taken to the Jerusalem to be circumsised on the eight day after birth during the feast of tabernacle.
      so we should expect the Lord to come during the fall feasts.

    • Passover, unlearned bread,First fruits, Pentecost The Spring Feast./// The Fall Feast are Trumpets, Attonments, Tabernacle.

  3. Shalom everyone. I am Cyatta… also known as Essence. My heritage is native American, my inheritance is Christianity; as that is what my family clung to as a religion and taught all of its offspring. Through growing up I have studied many religions via higher academia. I personally have realized that I am a believer ?… & my spirit and soul resonates more with messianic Judaism. I desire to get in proper alignment with Yahweh & Yeshua where the holy days are concerned. I am in the process of unlearning and releasing all wrong teachings and I rebuke all ignorance.
    This post and the comments have been extremely helpful to me this a.m. please feel free to respond with any helpful information for someone of my background to learn all holy days and rituals; as well as any other helpful information, links, books, and videos that will serve a beneficial and effective tools to help others learn the correct ways to honor and praise Yahweh, to pay our respects and show gratitude to Yeshua for his work done on the cross, and to keep from grieving the holy spirit.
    It’s unfortunate that I had to reach outside of the churches I have attended for this information. Yet, I am grateful for the opportunity to meet God’s other children in the church body that extends beyond four walls and lead to many nations in the land of the living.

  4. According to this Unleavened Bread and First Fruits are on the same day (Evening) Apr16. Tell me why Pentecost is NOT June 11 at sunset which is Sivan 12 exactly 50 days after First Fruits?

  5. Nisan 17 was 3 days after Nisan 14, which was the Feast of Passover. Jesus died on Feast of Passover between 3:00 pm and 6:pm. He was buried on the Feast of Unleavened Bread (Nisan 15) after 6:00 pm, then rose again on the third day (Nisan 17 A.D. 30) The Temple was destroyed on AV 9, A.D. 70 (forty years later) which fulfilled Ezekiel 4:6. In case you really like the timekeeping aspect, On Nisan 10 was the day that Messiah rode into Jerusalem on the foal of an Ass, this was Psalm Sunday…Messiah (the Lamb) dwelt with Israel until He was sacrificed as the Passover Lamb of God on Nisan 14. Jesus the Messiah ascended to the Father 50 days after His Resurrection. That was the Feast of Pentecost, when the first disciples of Messiah were given the Holy Spirit to dwell inside of them.

    • I apologize, Acts 1:3 does say He was seen with them 40 days…so the Apostles had ten days until Feast of Pentecost to await for the promise from the Father. The Holy Spirit was given to the church on the Feast of Pentecost as a gift of betrothal to His Bride.

    • These cannot be known for certain as the New Testament never mentions a calendar date. This is one possible scenario and is reasonably thought out. Because the Gospels are not date specific, I don’t believe it is all that important. Thanks for your comment.

      • Shalom Larry,
        Why wouldn’t it be important? Isn’t the Messiahs calendar the one we should pay most attention to?

        • “Messiah’s calendar?” Not sure what you mean. No calendar date (name/number of the month or the number of the day of the month) was important enough to the gospel message that any of the New Testament writers ever bothered to mention it.

  6. Does not First Fruits represent our Savior’s ascension to the Father? For He is the First of the First Fruits. And would it not be the 3rd day and nights after He was crucified being placed in The Tomb just at sunset on the Sabbath?

    • Hi Sandra,
      It is true that First Fruits foreshadows Yeshua’s resurrection. As to the exact timing… well, I don’t think we can nail that down with absolute certainty. That doesn’t change the fact that Yeshua was crucified, buried, and raised again in fulfilment of these Feasts. For further clarification, or maybe for further ambiguation, check out my post Guess What Day It Is.

  7. Does Pentecost/Shavuot always fall on a Sunday? If not I’m hoping for more in-depth explanation as I at this place and time in my spiritual walk not 100% sure. Thank you.

    • Hi Sandra,
      You ask an excellent question, and will find that people disagree. Check out my post Shavuot, The Undated Holiday for my take. If you are part of a local fellowship, please keep Pentecost/Shavuot when those you are in covenant with celebrate it. I believe unity is far more important than figuring out who is right.

      This year, the two different traditions will keep Shavuot on the same day, Sunday, June 5, which is the same day the Christian community is observing Pentecost. It is a great opportunity to share.

      • Shavuot’s timing is really very simple. “Lev 23:11 And he shall wave the sheaf before YHWH, to be accepted for you: on the morrow after the sabbath the priest shall wave it.”
        The question is always: “is it the morrow after a Feast Shabbat OR morrow after the seventh day Shabbat?”
        The plain, clear answer is found in:
        “Lev 23:15 And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the sabbath, from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven sabbaths shall be complete:
        Lev 23:16 Even unto the morrow after the seventh sabbath shall ye number fifty days; …”
        There it is! To number 50 days AND land on a “morrow after the sabbath”, one has to START on a morrow after the Sabbath! And, since there are no more feast Sabbaths in late spring/early summer to land on, Scripture is clearly speaking of the morrow after a seventh day Shabbat!
        This issue has caused so much division and confusion when it is really clear and simple if one just reads further on in the chapter.

        • It is simple if you only follow your English translation and dismiss the Hebrew text, the Septuagint text, and differing English translations. For more, see my post Shavuot – The Undated Holiday. However, we should not divide over this. Here, it is acceptable to agree to disagree. Both methods could even be wrong.

  8. My Name is Mark I’m single no family OK and know absolutely no one that celebrates these feast days can yall please email me or send me step by step instructions on how I can celebrate these feast days and God approving of it some of these feast are week long events and there is no way I can take off work for a week at a time can you help

    • Shalom Mark,

      When I first started keeping the Biblical feasts I thought there was no one else around. After a while, I began finding others and later discovered there were many. Just start by being faithful and doing the best that you can.

      There are a few articles on each feast here on The Messianic Light, along with some suggested resources. Most of the books you can sample on Amazon to see if they interest you.

      As for taking a week off work, that is certainly not a Scriptural command. There are only seven days during the year (besides the weekly Sabbath) when we are told to not do our regular work: the first and seventh days of Unleavened Bread, Shavuot, Yom Teruah, Yom Kippur, the first day of Sukkot and the Eighth Day.

      Passover, First Fruits, and the days in between the “sabbaths” I just listed are not days you must take off. Hanukkah and Purim aren’t even commanded at all. Celebrating feasts is not meant to be a burden and you should not feel obligated to take a whole week off just because someone else does.

      Be blessed in your efforts!
