In recent years, sighting of the new crescent from the southern part of Israel near the western border has been prevented by the Israeli Defense Forces due to safety problems. Therefore, it is assumed the crescent won't be seen on the 7th month until the later part of the 15th, causing the first day of the 7th month to be on September 16, 2015 as shown in the table.
