Will the New moon of Abib change the count to Pentecost?

    If the confirmation of the new moon of Abib is a day later this year, the Passover will change to a Sabbath. Will that also change the count to Pentecost this year?

 

    The count to the Feast of Weeks or Pentecost will remain unchanged. The key to the count is the wave sheaf of firstfruits offered on the day following the weekly Sabbath, which would be the Sunday that falls within the Feast of Unleavened Bread. Many confuse the start of the count, thinking that the weekly Sabbath must fall within the Feast of Unleavened Bread. The weekly Sabbath only defines the day on which to start the count, meaning the Sunday that falls within the Feast of Unleavened Bread.
