After reviewing the barley from the land of Israel and communicating with Brian Convery who has 20 years of experience of actively looking for the barley from Israel, YRM is ready to officially confirm that the March new moon on 3/14/21 will begin the month of Abib, i.e., the month of young ears of grain. We encourage all to look for and report any new moon sightings to YRM this Sunday.

Even though there are photos below of both domestic and wild barely, YRM only uses WILD barley to determine Abib. Also, all photos are courtesy of
