Where does Creation take place?

The Creation took place before the world as we know it existed.

When does Creation take place?

God made most of the Creation before time and space as we know it existed. The Hebrew calendar starts counting at the moment that Adam and Eve were created on the sixth day of Creation. The seven days of Creation correspond to the last five days of the Hebrew month of Elul: 25th, 26th, 27th, 28th, and 29th; and the 1st and 2nd days of Tishrei, the two days of Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year).

What happened at Creation?

God created the world in seven days.
On day one, God said “Let there be light” and separated light from darkness.
On day two, He created an expanse between water on the earth and the water in the sky.
On day three, He gathered the waters together in one place so that land could appear.
On day four, He created the sun, the moon and the stars to light up the sky.
On day five, He filled the waters with fish and the air with birds.
On day six, He made animals and then formed Adam out of dust and breathed life into him. Eve was created from a rib that was extracted from Adam.
On day seven, God rested from creating.
