jewishtojdConverts a date in the Jewish Calendar to Julian Day Count


int jewishtojd ( int $month , int $day , int $year )

Although this function can handle dates all the way back to the year 1 (3761 B.C.), such use may not be meaningful. The Jewish calendar has been in use for several thousand years, but in the early days there was no formula to determine the start of a month. A new month was started when the new moon was first observed.



The month as a number from 1 to 13


The day as a number from 1 to 30


The year as a number between 1 and 9999

Return Values

The julian day for the given jewish date as an integer.
