What is the significance of the 9th hour of the 9th day of the 9th month of the 9th year? - Updated
This ad is all over the Charedi press this week.
I understand the 9th day of the 9th month but how is this the 9th year? What is it the 9th year of?
Someone suggested that 9th year is the 9th year after Yovel. However, that is impossible for a number of reasons.
1. This is the 4th year of the shemitta cycle so there is no way that this is the 9th year of the Yovel cycle the math doesn't work out.
2. There is no Yovel nowadays so there can't be a 9th year in the Yovel cycle.
