Hebrew Calendar and the Messiah


Dear Rabbi, I want to ask you a very interesting question. Many famous Kabbalists said that the messiah will come at in the 6th millennium. This year is 2020 and the Hebrew year is 5780.

Now I am confused: Does he come after 3980 years if we count from the English calendar, or after 220 years if we count from the Hebrew calendar. Please clear up my confusion.

  1. All dates in Judaism follow the Hebrew calendar. As you point out, we are currently in the year 5780, which means that the 6,000th year will be in 220 years from now.
