I am trying to download a 20 year yahrtzeit calendar to my google or iphone calendar. In both cases, the file is downloaded as an ics file, but when i try to view in the folder or import it into my calendar, I see it is a pdf. Is there a way to fix this? I would really like to have the reminders....Thanks!

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.

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.

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:

Hi, thanks for your message. You can specify your preference for Havdalah minutes past sundown here:




For more information about what number to specify, read this article.

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.

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.
