 The starting time for a “Jewish” day can be described by three stages of light: Alot Hashahar, Misheyakir, and Hanetz Hahama.

Alot Hashahar refers to dawn when light is first noticeable on the eastern horizon. This is the earliest possible time for fulfilling daytime obligations, such as performing mitzvot like hearing the shofar on Rosh Hashana or shaking the lulav on Sukkot.
