Rochel Gross

Teves is the tenth month (counting from Nisan). The Yidden brought the name “Teves” with them from Bavel. Rosh Chodesh This year there are two days Rosh Chodesh, because the preceding month of Kislev had thirty days. However, during years where Kislev is only twenty-nine-days long, Rosh Chodesh Teves is only one day. Mazel of the Month The mazel of Teves is g’di, a goat, for it is a time when goats graze in the fields.
