How many weeks in a month in a year

There's no annual calendar. The durations of the various events in the Jewish calendar were determined by observing the moon's phases. Right now, the world is in the third month of the year. There are still 6 weeks in the month. The feast of Shavuot occurs on the summer solstice and the last day of the year is the day of the fall holiday Rosh Hashanah

Week

A week has 7 days because the Gregorian calendar follows the phases of the moon. Although the Moon takes 29.5 days to cycle through its phases, this is a hard number to base a time span on. It was the Babylons that rounded this cycle down to 28 days and divided into period units of 4, with 7 days each. This is why there are 4 weeks in a month.The ISO week date system is effectively a leap week calendar system that is part of the ISO 8601 date and time standard issued by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) since 1988 (last revised in 2019) and, before that, it was defined in ISO (R) 2015 since 1971. It is used (mainly) in government and business for fiscal years, as well as in timekeeping. This was previously known as "Industrial date coding". The system specifies a week year atop the Gregorian calendar by defining a notation for ordinal weeks of the year.

The exception to the "52 weeks" rule pops up if you're using a fancy academic journal or office wall planner; sometimes they number the weeks based on them running from Sunday to Saturday, or Monday to Sunday, breaking up the first and last weeks of the year to fit this mould. Although there are still only 52 weeks in the year, and time doesn't magically slow down**, the way a calendar like that counts fragments at the start and end of the year might mean that the weeks are numbered as high as 54. E.g.: 2021 marks the beginning of a new decade. 2021 began on Friday, January 1 and will end on Friday, December 31, 2021. Usually, a year consists of 12 months and 52 weeks. India follows the Saka Calendar along with the Gregorian calendar. (Source: www.indiatoday.in)
