The Hebrew or Jewish calendar differs significantly from the Gregorian calendar that we are familiar with. A Hebrew month has 29 or 30 days. This automatically leads to corresponding shifts between the Hebrew and the Gregorian calendar. In addition, a “leap month” is inserted a total of 7 times in a cycle of 19 years in the Hebrew calendar. In such a leap year, the normal month “Adar” is preceded by the “additional Adar”.
A Hebrew month is called Av (or Aw). This month begins in the mid-July and mid-August range. Looking at historical events, day 9 of the month Av stands out. Many events concerning the Israeli and Jewish people happened on the same day of Av 9. The following listing is taken from Elena’s Israel blog.

*) In Elena’s Israel blog, the year is 1312 BC indicated. However, this year cannot be correct. Using the biblical sequence (chronicle) and the historically documented dates of other events, the year 1450 BC can be concluded for the exodus of Israel from Egypt.Minor deviations of just a few years are quite possible. The Hebrew calendar begins in 3761 BC. However, there is a not inconsiderable discrepancy when calculating the length of the Medo-Persian rule. The discrepancy is in the range of 239 years.
