There are two broad and primary goals of this study. The first is to discover the nature of the calendar that was used by ancient Israel, i. e., the biblical calendar. The second is to expound a procedure that may be applied in today’s society by which this calendar (or one especially “close” to it) may be used.

The modern calculated Jewish calendar will be abbreviated MCJC. If one considers it worthwhile to replace the MCJC with another calendar, that would only make sense if the proposed replacement was based upon the same principles as the calendar used by ancient Israel, i. e., the biblical calendar. The second requirement for replacing the MCJC is to expound a procedure that may be applied in today's society by which this calendar may be used.

It is important to have a clear stated philosophy with the guiding principles that are to be used to develop a procedure to apply the calendar that was used by ancient Israel. The philosophy used in this study is now presented in the order of the priority of the philosophical principles.
