Is it possible to show when it is mevarchim chodesh from the API? I can see there's a provision for it starting on line 462 of the gen_luach.pl file, but I don't see a way to call it from the REST API

My calendar on my apple computer shows holidays, dates of Rosh Chodesh, days of the Omer, and names of weekly parsha- but no candle lighting time. How can I add that?

I was able to create a calendar and then subscribe so I can view it in outlook, but it is only a one year calendar and I want to be able to see Hebrew dates etc. a few years into the future. How do I do that?

Hi, Love your site. There is any way to set the notification time before downloading the calendar to my iPhone? The reason I'm asking is because when I select the "Show Hebrew date for dates with some event", i'm getting the notification for the Hebrew date 2 days before. (For example, for each candle lighting in Friday, I'm getting date notification on Wednesday) Thanks, Erez.

Hi, sorry to hear that you're having trouble with default notifications on the iPhone calendar. Our calendar feeds do not specify any alarms.


We'd recommend going to Settings, then Mail, Contacts, Calendars, then scroll down to the Calendars section and choose Default Alert Times:




Then be sure to check None for All-Day Events

Hi,

Is the Shabbat times REST API return rsults about holiday too?
or just about shabbat?

Thanks,
Yosi

Yes, our Shabbat API returns some limited information about holidays. If you look at the documentation, you'll see an example where one of the items has a category of holiday.

Our community (Wellington, New Zealand) uses the 8.5 degrees method for havdalah time which varies noticeably from any fixed minutes after sunset at times of the year. Is it be possible to specify this method as an alternative to minutes after sunset?

When we added the Hebcal feed to our wordpress BETA site the feed presents Havdalah first, then Parashat hashavuah and then candle lighting time, in reverse order. How can we make the correct order? Thanks.

Thanks for your message. Sorry for the inconvenience!


To fix the problem, please edit the Hebcal candle-lighting times RSS feed to add the text &pubDate=0 to the end of the URL. For example, if the URL you were using looks like this:


http://www.hebcal.com/shabbat/?cfg=r&geonameid=281184&i=on&m=50


Change it to this:


http://www.hebcal.com/shabbat/?cfg=r&geonameid=281184&i=on&m=50&pubDate=0

The json api response is missing a header in the response to allow access by origin.

example request showing the problem:

XMLHttpRequest cannot load http://www.hebcal.com/shabbat?cfg=json&geo=pos&latitude=31&longitude=35&m=50&tzid=Asia%2FJerusalem. No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource. Origin 'http://127.0.0.1:8000' is therefore not allowed access.

the jewish calendar api is ok.
