Last week, on Passover eve, April 15th, there was a lunar eclipse, otherwise known as a blood moon. There has been some speculation, especially in Christian circles, about the significance of this event. It is the first of four blood moons that will occur this year and next falling on traditional Jewish Holidays, which are based upon biblical feasts. The second blood moon in this “tetrad” will occur on October 8th, which is the Jewish Sukkoth or the Bible Feast of Booths. Next year, there will be two more lunar eclipses falling on Passover and Sukkoth as well.
