I am moving. I have Hebcal set up for my Google Calendar for 2015-2019. I want to know how to remove all the Hebcal times from the date of the move forward, and then to get the times for the new location from the date of the move.
I am trying not to lose past events.

Hi, I hope someone can help me out. I'm new to the Moedim and I want to honour them faithfully.
Some groups are saying Pesach is in March, while other groups such as this one, are dating it in April. Can someone explain why the difference?
Shalom.

There is a lot of place to add the day (Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri, Sat, Sun) next to the date for every single day. Put this feature as another option one could select.
Thanks for sharing this calender, it is great.

I am trying to get the Chanukah candle lighting times to display correctly on my website (http://maoztzur.info/).


I want to display it based on the user's IP address. I retrieve the user's coordinates via plugging their IP address into the freegeoip API.


I am testing it with location set to Jerusalem by manually plugging in latitude 31.7833 and longitude 35.2167, which is what Google returns for Jerusalem. However for today this returns a time of 5:47pm, whereas https://www.hebcal.com/shabbat/?city=IL-Jerusalem returns a time of 5:25pm.


Any idea as to where this discrepancy comes from?


Thanks

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

Answer

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?
