This implementation of the HebrewCalendar class recognizes only the Hebrew years 5343 to 5999 (1583 to 2239 in the Gregorian calendar).

In every 19-year cycle that ends with a year that is evenly divisible by 19, the 3rd, 6th, 8th, 11th, 14th, 17th, and 19th years are leap years. A common year can have from 353 to 355 days, depending on the placement of Jewish holidays. A leap year can have from 383 to 385 days.

The following code example calls IsLeapYear for five years in each of the eras.
