HebCal Icon/Logo

Daniel Bjorndahl 2 years ago • updated by Michael J. Radwin 2 years ago 1

What does the icon representing HebCal mean, which appears in my browser on the tab for this website? These Hebrew letters are also in the logo of the website.

Answer

It's the Hebrew word for calendar. Transliterated "Luach".

Havdalah times missing when holiday is on Motzei Shabbat

Uziel 2 years ago • updated by glenm201 7 months ago 5

Hi!

I'm having a bug, since my application is using your rest API for getting shabbat times, and its looking for two categories: "candles", "havdala".

But this week, since 1st candle of Hanuka is occuring in Motzei Shabat, there category "havdala" is missing, causing an exception in my application.

Answer

If you see a candle lighting time event on a Saturday night you can assume that it signifies both Havdalah and candle lighting for the holiday.

Amazon Echo date converter

Tamar 2 years ago • updated by Michael J. Radwin 2 years ago 1

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.

Answer
Michael J. Radwin 2 years ago

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 change the settings without success

Wenger Jacques 2 years ago • updated by Michael J. Radwin 2 years ago 1

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.

Do you intend to adapt your beautiful programs for Windows Phone?

Regards,

Jacques Wenger
