What calendar is currently used for judaism?
The Jewish calendar consists of twelve lunar months. It also keeps in step with the solar year, by adding a thirteenth lunar leap-month seven times every nineteen years.
The Gregorian calendar, which sticks to the solar year, ignores the lunar months and does not attempt to keep in step with them.
Judaism has its own unique calendar which is a luni-solar calender where every month is a lunar month, but the years change length to coordinate roughly with a solar year (354 and 384 days) and become equivalent after 19 years. This calendar in its present form dates back to 360 CE; before that, the New Moon was declared following the testimony of witnesses..

It's not, it's called the Gregorian Calender. Julius Caesar reformed and improved the old Roman calender in the first century B.C. and thus it was called the Julian Calender. …His reform was very good but it did not allow for the fact that a year is actually 365.25 days long. It had the year being exactly 365 days. Thus by the Middle Ages the calendar was off by eleven days. Pope Gregory the Great revised it by just cutting out eleven days one year, so the calender would "catch up" with the actual position of the sun and stars in the sky, and adding leap years so that it would not get out of alignment again. Thus we now have the Gregorian Calender.
most people are confused about when Jewish holidays fall as they seem to change dates according to the regular calendar. the Jewish calendar is a compromise between the solar… and the lunar calendar . there are 12 lunar months + 11 days in each solar year so the Jewish calendar runs according to lunar months and adds a leap month every 2 or three years over a 19-year cycle. most Jewish festivals tend to occur at full moon. note: every sabbath is also a day of rest, prayer and specials meals *Jewish day begins at sunset Jewish months: tishrei, heshvan, kislev, tevet, shvat. adar, Nissan, iyar, sivan, tammuz, av, and elul Jewish holidays begin in month of tishrei (actually the 7th month) which falls in sept/oct, biblical holidays in bold: 1. rosh hashanah (new year) 2 day holiday (1st 2 days of month of tishrei) 2. day after rosh hashanah-- fast of gedalia 3. yom kippur (day of atonement) (10th of tishrei) 4. sukkot (feast of tabernacles) 7 day holiday in israel, 8 days elsewhere (15th tishrei) 5 shmini atzeret /simchat Torah eight day of assembly/rejoicing in the Torah day after last day of sukkot 1 day in israel, 2 days elsewhere . 6. Hanukkah 8 days 7. fast of 10th of month of tevet 8. tu b'shvat (new year of the trees) 15th shvat 9. purim (feast of esther) which is preceded by the fast of esther. 10. pesach ( passover) 7 day holiday in israel, 8 days elsewhere (15th Nissan) 11. lag b'omer 33rd day of counting between passover & shavuot 12. shavuot (feast of weeks/giving of the Torah) 7 weeks after beginning of passover 1 day in israel, 2 days elsewhere 13. fast of the 17th of tammuz 14. the nine days, from 1-9th of av, the 9th is a fast day

The calender would slowly get out of sync with the seasons.

5520. The next year will begin on June 21st.
As of 2015, the next time 2012 repeats itself will be in 2040 and then 2068 and then 2096. 2012 was a leap year, so it takes longer for a leap year to come round to starting o…n the same date again.
That depends on who you mean by "we". There are different calendarsstill used around the world, hence different festivals for people,like the Jewish New Year, being held at di…fferent times. Not allcalendars are even the same length, accounting for why certainthings from different calendars seem to happen at different timeseach year. So most of the world does use the Gregorian calendar,but not everyone.
