COMMENTS

Rosh Hashanah, the new year of the Hebrew Calendar, is the first day of the month of Tishri, which typically falls around the September equinox.

The holiday of Rosh Hashanah lasts for two days; this sequence considers only the first day.

The mathematical rules for determining the Hebrew Calendar stipulate that Rosh Hashanah cannot fall on Sunday, Wednesday, or Friday. So, every number in this sequence is 2, 3, 5, or 7.

The Hebrew Calendar is periodic with a period of 689472 years, so this sequence is periodic with period 689472.
