Haftarah Ki Teitzei incorrect when Re'eh is Shabbat Rosh Chodesh

Avraham Eisen 2 years ago updated by Raya Even David 1 year ago 1

The website is showing the incorrect Haftarah for Ki Teitzei when Parshat Re'eh is Shabbat Rosh Chodesh.  If the website is going to say that the Haftarah for Shabbat Rosh Chodesh is read for Parshat Re'eh, then the Haftarah for Ki Teitzei should show that it's Isaiah 54:1 - 55:5.

I know there are a few different traditions for when this happens, but there's no such tradition where the Haftarah for Shabbat Rosh Chodesh is read for Parshat Re'eh, and the Haftarah for Parshat Ki Teitzei remains unchanged (54:01 - 54:10), as the website currently displays.


Creating recurring events using a Hebrew date

Ari Witkin 1 year ago updated by Pinchas Landis 5 months ago 1

Is it possible to create a recurring event on a google calendar that has been synched with Hebcal that is based on the Hebrew date but will match us with the english date in future years? For example, if I wanted to input an annual event on the 9th of Iyar would that be feasible? 


The holiday days seem to be going into the next day as if that next day is also holiday.

The holiday days seem to be going into the next day as if that next day is also holiday.

This does not happen for candle lighting or havdalah.

1 Example ,The duration on outlook seems to be preset to 2 days. the event times goes from 10/9/2019 12:00am and ends 10/10/2109 12:00am . I would need to open the specific event "uncheck all day event" to correct this.


Outlook 2016 - Days Cross Over

Neil M 1 year ago 0

Downloaded ICS for Outlook 2016 for Israel. However, it shows each day as staddling two days e.g. 1 AV will start on one english day and carry onto the next. I think its because its picking up each "event" as starting at 1am and finishing at 1am.


Yom Tov support for Google Calendar

Saar 2 years ago updated by dstat 4 months ago 4

Would be really cool to add support for identifying which day is Yom Tov and work should be avoided and which day is a normal holiday where work is permitted.

When exporting the calendar to Google Calendar, it shows all the dates as a single color with the same description

Possible ways to improve: 

1. Change color of yom tov holiday something different than default color


2. Add a note to the yom tov holidays stating that it is a yom tov.

For example, Pesach is coming up and all the days are the same on my calendar. Would be nice to have a way to identify that the first two days and last two days are different

Per the Date Converter, Tish'a B'Av 5779 seems to be on 20190810, and not 20190811, as indicated on at the Holiday pages, Will someone please investigate and fix if applicable?

Hi, sorry about that, we have removed Palm support from Hebcal. PalmOS devices were discontinued in 2011 and it's time for us to discontinue our support as well.
