no show on birthdays!

Geral 2 months ago updated by Horea Kaii 2 months ago 2

I recently, eagerly, added Hebrew birthdays to family members on my iPhone but some of them are showing up on the incorrect hebrew date or not showing up at all. It should be noted that the birthdays that were added in the past do not have this issue. How can I remedy this? Might it have something to do with a recent IOS update?


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.


Is there a way to download future calendars for iOS? I can’t download beyond the current year

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.

Does anyone know where I can find information regarding limits on requests - for example how many requests can be made per minute, hour, day?

Cleaning up calendar downloads - Apple devices

questioning 1 year ago updated 1 year ago 3

A few years ago, in an easy download, I subscribed to Hebcal's Jewish calendar for my apple devices (MacBook pro, iPad, iPhone, all synced). It seemed to roll over from year to year. However recently I noticed, looking ahead to next year, that my Jewish calendar entries (holidays as well as Torah portions) abruptly ended. I went back onto Hebcal to download again, and now somehow I have multiple versions for certain dates, each represented in a different color as a different "calendar" within Apple (one called Jewish Holidays+my location, and two simply called Jewish Holidays). I want to clean this up without losing PAST Jewish holidays. Any suggestions?  Also, am I correct that there's no way to contact Hebcal directly about this?
