Hi guys - I want to convert Hebrew dates into English dates. But whenever I say "Alexa, ask Hebcal to convert 26 Tishrei 5684" or similar, I get "which city or zip code do you want for Shabbos times?" which doesn't help me at all.
Also - could be awesome if you had the tool act as a Hebrew/English (language) translator, not just a date converter.
"Alexa, ask Hebcal - what's the English transaltion for tov?"
"Alexa, ask Hebcal - what's the Hebrew word for good?"
Just a thought... I realize that's gonna be massive htough.
Thanks for the feedback and the suggestion!
Our voice integration with Alexa only offers converting from Gregorian dates to Hebrew. It does not yet offer the inverse conversion. We will need to investigate how well Alexa understands non-English words like Tishrei and Chesvhan.
Regarding language translation, there already appears to be at least one Alexa skill that can do multi-lingual translations:
I am using Lumia 640 Windows 10 phone.
I made a shortcut to your Hebrew calendar. I changed the settings to have the Hebrew dates
I did save the settings but those settings are forgotten as soon I close the website.

How do I write the function that shows sunset & nightfall (3 stars) PER DAY depending on location?
On my hebcal installation on my site it is displaying candle lighting and Havdalah times for multiple dates, some of which have past a couple days ago. These correspond to the holidays (Erev Rosh Hashana, Rosh Hashana 7777, Rosh Hashana II, Tzom Gedaliah, and Shabbat Shuva). I don't want the times displaying for dates that have passed, even if they are holidays. Is showing the holidays that have passed a bug or a feature of Hebcal? If a feature, is there a setting I can change to hide the past holiday dates?
This is what I am using on my html to display the times:
Thanks for your help.
We take from your website information about the next Sabbath by a RSS feed reader.
The information we present on our website http://www.beitkitov.org/.
We are generating link as follows:
http://www.hebcal.com/shabbat/ -> Rss feed
We obtain then the link:
So far it worked well but today mistakenly generated:
Shabbat Times for Warsaw, Masovian Voivodeship, Poland
On http://www.hebcal.com presented data from rss feed are correct:
I found a workaround:
(without & PubDate =0) shows the data correctly:
We use a standard rss reader, which is available as a technology blogger widget.
We would like to ask you to fix error :)
