I realized in reading my own response that I had not answered your main
question: what then are the correct dates for the High Holidays. The Day of
Remembrance is the first day of month seven (always Wed), the Day of
Atonement is on the 10th (always Fri) and the Feast of Succoth is on the
15th (always Wed)
