The Jewish calendar is based on the Lunar methodology and this is why it completely differs from the Gregorian calendar. Both of these calendars although have the 12 months but the months take place in the different directions from each other.
We know the Jewish calendar as the Hebrew calendar which is comprised of the Jewish holidays as per the Jewish culture. It is prominently followed in Israel as they have completely different months when their year starts and ends in the comparison of the Gregorian calendar.
This is why we have to convert the month of the Gregorian calendar into the Hebrew month in order to know the Jewish holidays.
For example, if you want to know that what are the festivals or the holidays of the Jewish month, which take in the month of November then you would have to convert this month equivalent to the Jewish month.

Here in this article, we would list out the holidays which are taking place in both of these “Cheshvan&Kislev months.

The day falls on the sixth day on the month of Kislev month and the people of Israel remember the vision and the life of Ben Gurion, who used to be the one among prominent leaders of Israel’s history.
