Torah Calendars

Godthefather has posted Torah Calendars for over 10 years! Please feel free to download, copy or use any of our Bible calendars. These are meant to be a free resource for all. Hopefully, these will be an aid to all learning Torah, applying Bible principles to their lives today or anyone else that just might be curious.

You will find calendars dating back to when we started recording the Torah calendar in 2005.  You will also find projected future Torah calendars.  I must stress these future calendars are only projected – and will be corrected as new moon sightings and Torah “turn of the year” signs show us the real beginning of the year as per Yehovah’s Torah.


Happy New Year 2016 !




Check out our New Moon charts and see when the new moon is expected in Israel.

Plans for God the Father website

Here are a few things in the works for this year.


  • HOT OFF THE PRESS (Yes, it is coming back!  🙂 )
  • BLOG  (A Blog page with multiple authors)
  • STORE (Torah T-shirts, stickers, decals, etc.)
  • VIDEOS (Educational Bible Videos)
  • PICTURES (Pictures from local events, etc)
  • LINKS (Websites of interest for the people of Yah)


We will be adding these items into the new and improved God the Father website.  Please be patient and stop by often.  We look forward to providing improved content as this work continues. Thanks!


Welcome to the new and improved “GodTheFather” website!  The original site was nice, but lacking in several areas that necessitated a completely new website.  This new site has many of the same things you enjoyed on the original, all laid on a new “chassis”.  This new high-performance chassis will allow us to give this site the ability to reach the fastest growing segment of the internet – mobile devices.  This is only the beginning.  New features and content will be coming.  Thank you for your patience during this transition.

What is this website about?

This is an information website.  Learn about the God of the Bible – YEHOVAH.  HE is the God of Noah, Abraham, Moses and Yeshua.  Names in Hebrew have meaning.  Yeshua is the actual given name of the man who is today called Jesus.  Yeshua is the shortened form of the Hebrew name “Yehoshua” (Joshua).  The name “Yeshua” means “YEHOVAH Saves”.

May YEHOVAH guide your studies as your learn HIS ways.  These articles, pictures, videos, news stories and many links are man-made.  Mankind is not perfect – and neither is this website.  This website is only a tool to help you turn and go in the way of the One True God – YEHOVAH.
