Creation Calendar Board
Yahud’Yath – Paleo Hebrew Script
Creation Calendar – Numbering the Days
Our family has been following the calendar of creation for several years now. It started years ago when we studied the books of 1st Enoch and Jubilees. Like most people, we followed the Moedim (appointed times) throughout the year using paper or electronic calendars.
In 2022 we saw a video on the discovery of ancient calendar boards in Israel. They were a simple peg board with holes for months and days.
Our custom hand-made Creation Calendar board has a few more features. The top row of the calendar has YAH’s name and words of inspiration from Lamentations 3:22-23 to remind us as we peg another day that His mercy has been renewed each morning.
The bottom portion of the board can contain any verse you wish given the space allowed. Based on the method we use to adhere the ink to the wood, the print can not be too small. Tell us the verse you are interested in and we can tell you if it will work or not.
Sierra studies ancient paleo Hebrew. She selected a font fitting the timeframe in which the boards were in use during King David’s reign. We can create the boards in Paleo letters or English. We can also provide blank boards with holes and pegs so you can do a craft project yourself and decorate as you desire.
Over the years Sierra has compiled all the dates mentioned in scripture into a database and has created a “supplement” for your calendar. Every day of the year is listed with all the events in scripture that occurred on those dates. These dates include the book of Jubilees. It was something we did for ourselves to enrich our calendar observance and feast-keeping. We are happy to share this information with each calendar order.
We have put together templates and design materials and would welcome the opportunity to make a custom calendar board for your home. Complete the form below to place your order.

Q: How big is the board and how is it finished?
Dimensions: 11.5″ width x 13.5″ height
They are made of soft wood, usually Aspen, and cut to size, then crown/edging around the outside. The boards are completely stained including the pegs and finished to resist water and spills.
Q: What size are the areas for text that can be customized?
The top banner is 10.5″ width x 1.75″ height. In the sample pictures, the letters YHVH are done in a 72pt size font and the words to the left and right are 14pt.
Two rows at 14pt font is as big height-wise as will visually look good leaving space in between. In the sample pictures at the bottom, the font size is 30pt and bold. We suggest avoiding 3 rows even at the bottom.
Feel free to email us before sending in an order to discuss what you want on your board and we can give you a thumbs up or down on the sizing before you order.
Q: What is included?
All boards come with 3 pegs and complete detailed instructions on how to track each day (Calendar Board “blanks” have no markings or colorings – just holes and pegs.)
Each order also includes a free translation commentary on the verse selected (if less than 12 words). In addition to the Creator’s name the top row includes the words “Praise each morning – his mercy renews” (Lamentations 3:22-23) to help bring praise to our lips as we move the pegs daily around the board!
Also included is a historical, chronological account of all the appointed times and dates mentioned in scripture in PDF format. As you keep track of the days on your board you can see what happened in history on that day and read any associated scriptures. It is a fascinating learning tool.
