Most Hebrew People who do not study Kabbalah, perceive the New Year as the Holiday of Rosh Hashana. The actual New Year starts with Rosh Chodesh Nissan. Each of these months start much earlier for people. People need to prepare themselves in advance of the potential new year (Month - Chodesh of Nissan) and the actual New Year (Month - Chodesh of Tishrai) which is the Holiday of Rosh HaShanah. To learn more about these issues read each item below.
Preparation for the Tishrai Holidays
The preparation for the Tishrai Holidays commences on Rosh Chodesh Tammuz which includes the energy of the beginning of the three week period starting on the 17th day of Tammuz. Here is the link to bring you to recordings and hand outs about Tammuz

Rosh Chodesh Iyar
Pesach Sheini - Our spiritual second chance
Lag B'Omer is a unique astrological event due to the specific Spherot that is connected through the counting of the Omer on this day. The Mekubalim usually stay up with an all night study similar to the All Night study of Shavuot. This is because the counting of Hod S'B'Hod has all of the manifestation of the light of the Torah without any of the negativity associated with the physical world after the "Sin" of Adam and Eve. Here are links to assist you in this study.
Day 33 of the Omer starts 18th of Iyar - which is the evening of May 21 2011. The next date you see after the link is opened is not for the year 2011 or 5711.
This is the Holiday of Lag B'Omer (33rd of the Omer). Bar Be Que's and Bonfires take place all over Israel. It is good to read the Idra Zuta section of the Zohar and if possible to stay up all night. Tune in to the special study that will take place on our video conference and conference call systems both Saturday evening 10 PM PDT and Sunday morning at 10 AM PDT
Here are 2 links to material to use during your Lag B'Omer study
