The Jewish calendar's reference point is traditionally held to be about one year before the Creation of Adam and Eve, of our common early anthropocene world.
  • 3760 BC - first year of Creation. The Hebrew calendar year of 3760 Anno Mundi, became year 1 AD when Christianity decided to reset the Hebrew calendar. This point in time can be calculated by subtracting the current Gregorian calendar year from the current Jewish year. (Ex: 5776-2016). This was a significant point in human history and the recording of time, can be considered "the year of the big reset".
