I am half Jew and have no idea for the reason. It is scientifically known that it takes 365.25 days for the earth to circle the sun...this is known as a year. As such, every 365.25 days should be a new year. Although the Jewish calendar has different months, how come the new year does always coincide with the Julian calendar every year? Are there not 365 days in the Jewish calendar? If there aren't 365 days in the Jewish calendar, aren't they scientifically off by a few years?
