Hebrew holidays calendar & Gregorian calendar converter.

The Hebrew calendar differs from the Gregorian one. The Hebrew calendar has 12 months plus a thirteenth one that is added to the year every few years. This extra month is known as 'Adar Bet' (the second month of Adar). This is to compensate for the fact the Hebrew calendar is strictly a lunar calendar.  The Gergorian calendar has 365 days and 366 days during a leap year - every four years.  In the 3rd, 6th, 8th, 11th, 14th, 17th and 19th year of every Hebrew calendar (a 19-year cycle) another month Adar is added.
