The Genealogical Research Division of

Jewish Years - Character Conversion Program

Jewish years are often written in Hebrew letters.  Here, you can convert years

In addition, you will be told whether the Jewish year is a leap year or not; this can be important for yahrzeit and birthday anniversaries (see the InfoFile Introduction to the Jewish Calendar).

If you want to convert dates between the Jewish and civil calendars, please use JewishGen's online date calculator, JOS.

Numbers to Letters

Please select a Jewish year:

Letters to Numbers

Please mark the letters of the year, one in each column.  If none of the letters or letter combinations in the column is present, mark the blank field at the top.


* These two letter combinations do not co-occur with one of the letters in the middle column.  If one of these two letter combinations is selected, please make sure that the blank (first) item is marked in the middle column.
