Everything You Wanted to Know about the Month of Kislev

Kislev is the Babylonian name of the 9th month counting from the first month Nissan. It is 3 months after Rosh Hashana which is the beginning of Tishrei. Its Zodiac sign is Sagittarius (Keshet- bow, rainbow), as it's well known that the rains of Kislev cause rainbows when the sun comes out. Secondly, the first time a rainbow was ever seen in world history was on the 28th of Kislev when Noach exited the ark.
