The Jewish calendar is based on the lunar year. Rosh Chodesh celebrates a new moon which heralds the arrival of a new month. This traditionally would commence upon the first sighting of the new moon. In recent times the dates have been worked out mathematically so we are no longer dependant on sightings.
In the synagogue extra prayers are inserted into services to celebrate the start of a new month.
