I would like to call your attention to a missing Israeli national holiday in your Hebcal holiday list. Specifically I am referring to Yom HaAliyah. It is Israel's newest national holiday.
Yom HaAliyah should be listed in HebCal on the10th of the Hebrew month of Nisan. The 10th of Nisan is when the Torah says Joshua crossed the Jordan with all of Am Yisrael at Gilgal, and that is the official date of the new Israeli national holiday according to the bill passed by the Knesset on June 21st, 2016.
I don't know if you want to add it also, but the Yom HaAliyah bill mandates that schools in Israel also teach about Aliyah on the 7th of Cheshvan near Lech Lecha because on the official Yom HaAliyah date of the 10th of Nisan, the schools are not in session.
MK Micki Zohar in Knesset on the passing of Yom HaAliyah into law:

Thank you for adding this. It is crucial as many public calendars use and trust your website when setting their dates.
I would like to input more than 6 dates into a personalized birthday/yahrzeit calendar. Is there a way of adding more than 6 and if so please guide me on how to.

Hi, There seems to be a contradiction in the Calendar for 2018. In the Calendar View for 7th April 2018, it shows the Torah Portion is Shmini, but when I click on it for more details, it says Shmini is read on 14th April. I get the same for the 14th when clicking on Tazria-Metzora, it says it is read on 21st April. I am looking for the Israel readings and believe this is something to do with the difference between Diaspora and Israel reading schedule.
Could you please clarify?
