It’s reckoned by the moon. When Yah first mentions “months” in Exodus 12:2, each time month is used, it’s “chodesh”. In English, we would call it “the first of the month”.
One thing to remember is that when referring to the moon as an object, the word is yareach, as shown when Joseph is recounting his dream about the sun, moon and 11 stars bowing down to him in Genesis 37:9.
These words are what I’m finding in the Blue Letter Bible app, and it’s likely “Yiddish brew”. But we can see that the ISH people aren’t even keeping the proper appointed times of Yah.
This topic is a deep one, given the amount of history involved (calendar study and historical evidence).
