In looking into the mess of paganism and criminality which is whited over under the stolen name of "Judaism," be prepared to first read one subterfuge, or one "red herring," after another before truth even then shines through the cloud.
Under "Superstition, Jewish," the Universal Jewish Encyclopedia (1943) cites Rabbi Joshua Trachtenberg, and his book, Jewish Magic and Superstition as authoritative. His sketch also appeared in the 1955 Who's Who in World Jewry, with that work cited.
Typically, Trachtenberg first says concerning New Moon Day rites in the synagogue that "the pagan veneration of the New Moon' is not directly connected with the Talmudic ceremony observed today;" then he goes on to admit:
But certain superstitious practices have been associated with the rite, pointing to its continued occult importance in human affairs [such as] addressing the Moon three times: As I skip before you and do not reach you, so, if others jump before me may they not strike me, and then thrice bidding one s neighbor Peace be unto you. The ceremony as well as the three fold repetitions, are typical of magical acts and the belief that one who has performed the full rite need not fear death during the ensuing month. (page 256)
Invoking the Sun along with the Moon is cited on page 201 of the Trachtenberg book.
