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.

Hey there,

Is there a way of downloading a calendar without the candle lighting times?

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.

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:

I was wondering if there is a way to get just the Parshat Hashavua for a given hebrew or gregorian date, the way it tells you that info when you go to the date converter https://www.hebcal.com/converter/

I ask because I made a google doc that if you input an Gregorian date it will tell you when the earliest Gregorian date is for a bar or bat mitzvah:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1_F1qHbJsZTLk6p8_QYWha7dnlcEHokuMHA1Rjx3nMqI/edit#gid=539710776

and I was wondering if I can also easily get another column to be the parsha for that date

The XML version now includes the parashat haShavua.


https://www.hebcal.com/converter/?cfg=xml&gd=28&gm=12&gy=2015&g2h=1


<hebcal>
 <gregorian year="2015" month="12" day="28"/>
 <hebrew year="5776" month="Tevet" day="16" str="ט״ז בְּטֵבֵת תשע״ו"/>
 <events>
  <event name="Parashat Shemot" href="http://www.hebcal.com/sedrot/shemot"/>
 </events>
</hebcal>

I have been using this app for quite a few years now on Facebook, I get the email reminder but earlier this ear I noticed the reminders were not getting posted to Facebook. I went to the app and checked my setting and saw the post to Facebook was unchecked, I checked it and thought I fixed the problem.

I didn't check my email this past weekend and I don't see the items posted to my timeline and I missed the Yahrzeit lighting for my mother. I went back to the app to recheck the settings and the Facebook was unchecked AGAIN. I placed a check in it and went back to Facebook and then went back to the app and the check was once again removed.

There is no save setting button so how do I get the app to save the setting changes I make?
