November derived its name from the Latin word “Novem” meaning (9). It is the ninth 9th month of the Biblical sacred calendar, the second 3rd month according to the civil calendar 5781 and the eleventh 11th month according to the Gregorian calendar. Though it became the 11th month, it retained its name when January and February were added to the Roman calendar.
Cheshvan 5781 began on October 19, 2020 and will end on November 16, 2020.
October, November and December constitute the last quarter of the year following the Roman Gregorian calendar. It is the fall season moving into the winter. Except for human activity, the rest of creation is drying off, dying or falling away or going into hibernation in preparation for rest and recuperation during the long winter period. It’s the season when the seed must fall to the ground and begin to die (Joh 12:24). Only the barest necessities for survival remain and minimal energy is utilized.Click Here to View as PDF
