What’s My Hebrew Birthday?

I turn 44 tomorrow in the Western calendar. I was born May 28, 1966.

An Orthodox friend asks me for my Hebrew birthday.

“Dunno,” I say.

He says: “So it looks like it would be the ninth of Sivan, and your bar-mitzvah perasha would have been, interestingly, Naso. They were both this past Shabbat.”
