93. Enetaba - ('Ayn Taba)


(Talmud Babli, Rosh ha-Shanah, 25a)


Talmud Babli, Rosh ha-Shanah, 25a (5th cent. A.D.)
Rabbi Hiyya once saw the [old] moon in the heavens on the morning of the twenty-ninth day. He took a clod of hearth and threw it at it, saying, Tonight we want to sanctify you, and are you still here! Go and hide yourself. Rabbi thereupon said to Rabbi Hiyya, go to En-Tob and sanctify the moon and send me the watchword, 'David king of Israel is alive and vigorous'.
