The Hebrew calendar is a confusing thing. Most of us can’t tell their Tishrei from their Nisan. What better way, then, to learn about the themes and traditions of each Hebrew month than to figure it out for yourself in a challenging crossword puzzle? The puzzle will appear regularly on the second Tuesday of each month. This month, we have counting on our minds.

TO PLAY: Type in the answers in the puzzle or select the clue you wish to solve in the right column.
