The 7th month, is it Ethanim or Tishrei. Are they same?

According to 1 Kings 8 verse 2, the 7th month is Ethanim but on your website it is Tishrei. Are they same?

Yes, the real name is Etanim. From 1 Kings 8:2. Not all the months are given names but this one was. Tishrei is a Syrian/Babylonian name that later replaced the real name. Better to call it as the Torah called it! 


Thanks for using Hebcal!

According to Merriam Webster, Ethanim is the 7th month of the ancient Hebrew calendar corresponding to Tishri
