The calendar gives information on the moladot of all Jewish months, on the days of the week of beginnings of months, festivals and fasts, on the prayer for rain and dew, on biblical readings for each week. It also mentions correspondences between the Jewish, Muslim and Coptic months in the years under discussion, and some Muslim and Christian festivals. </p>
