March 19, 2017 would have been wave sheaf day had the barley been close to being ripe on February 27, 2017. We are now just 11 days away from the new moon being sighted on March 29, 2017. Will the barley be aviv by this new moon or will a 13th month be declared? Many declared a 13th month in 2016 because they did not have ripe barley by the new moon day. Will those same people now declare a 13th month again this year, two years in a row?
Checking the barley reports this week causes me to wonder because by New Moon day the state of the barley looks like it will be in the exact same state as it was last year when they declared a 13th month.
At Sightedmoon.com we believe you need to have ripe barley for the wave sheaf day during the days of Unleavened Bread. We do not believe you need ripe barley by New Moon day. But not everyone agrees with me. So ask yourself the question, why do we search for barley in the first place? Is it not for the wave sheaf offering during the Days of Unleavened Bread? Time to rethink our positions again.
