The Hebcal Alexa Skill

Joseph Kamelgard 2 years ago • updated by Michael J. Radwin 2 years ago 1

The Hebcal Alexa Skill is not recognizing my pronunciation of Hebcal (Heeb-kal). I have tried to speak faster, slower, from a closer distance, nothing works. Other skills work fine. Any recommendations?

Answer

Sorry to hear that Alexa is having trouble recognizing the name of our skill.


You can try saying "Alexa, open Hebcal"

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.

How to get Chanukah lighting times via API?

Aron Adler 2 years ago • updated 2 years ago 2

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.
