I have a "kosher" smartphone and want to know what is the difference for the paid version and how can I get it. I don't have a browser on my phone. A neighbor told me that he thinks that he paid for a full version and got benefits. thanks and it's a great program.

Hello,


Hebcal.com does not provide Android apps, free or premium. We have been providing a Jewish holiday and calendar website since 1998. Recently, an unaffiliated 3rd party called BotenSoft released a similarly-named Android app called HebCal.


If you're looking for support for the unrelated BotenSoft product, please contact Nahum Ben-Porath of BotenSoft.

How to get Chanukah lighting times via API?

Aron Adler 2 years ago • updated 2 years ago 2

Firstly, I am a big fan of Hebcal, and have used it before in this website.


Now I'd like to use Hebcal to display Chanukah lighting times in another website. How could I get these times on a daily basis via JavaScript request? I don't want to display them in a calendar, I just need them in a string to be requested each day.

Havdalah time not returning in API call.

Karthik K 2 years ago 0

Sometimes the API is not returning all the values (shabbat times). For example click on the link provided below. It is not displaying the havdalah time.


Example API url:

http://www.hebcal.com/shabbat/?cfg=json&m=20&b=20&geonameid=6693679

API response:

Earliest candle lighting time in summer?

Cathy Young Gramze 2 years ago • updated by Michael J. Radwin 2 years ago 2
Is it possible to add the earliest Halachic candle lighting time to the iCal calendar? These 16 hour summer days with a 9PM sunset are far too late for candle lighting and then supper. and I hate having to look up the sunrise time and doing the math to calculate that time myself.

Rosh Hashana/Yom Kippur

How often does Rosh Hashana of a current year fall on the same date as Yom Kippur of the following year? This happens in 2022 and 2023, so I was curious as to how often this occurs.

Hebrew Date JS not working?

Susan B. 2 years ago • updated 2 years ago 5
I put the JS for both Hebrew and Transliterated Hebrew date on this page https://bethemeth.org/jewish-calendar but it does not show up. In the next topic on the page, the JS for Shabbat times works great. The dates did work in the past. This is a Drupal site and I'm not a tech expert, so hoping someone can tell me where I went wrong. Thanks in advance.

Looks like a mismatch between http and https. Your synagogue website is https, but you were trying to load from hebcal over http. The security-level mismatch prevents the browser from fetching content from hebcal.com.

If your website uses https, you'll need to reference hebcal URLs using the same protocol.

We've updated our script tags to use // instead of http://. See the updated HTML you should use at this page:
