Five calendar systems

Five methods of determining the dates of the Feast of Tabernacles are represented in this list. The entries in the listing are marked with the date of the first full day of the Feast only if other than the date arrived at by observing the traditional system based on the Jewish calendar, which has the first full day of the Feast in 1997 beginning Thursday, Oct. 16.

The first full day of the Feast in the following list for each entry is Oct. 16 unless otherwise noted in parentheses after the entry. Other beginning dates at various Feast sites are Sept. 16, Oct. 15, Oct. 17 and Oct. 18.

Sites that plan to support more than one dating system are indicated by the dates in parentheses separated by commas, as in the following example: (Oct. 16, Oct. 17, Oct. 18).
