Hebcal downloaded for 2017, but didn’t continue into the future on my new iPad.  It worked properly  on my old iPad Air 2.  Is this something that I can fix?

Torah Readings on Mondays and Thursdays

Andrea 5 months ago 0

This is such a helpful webisite!  I visit it often to get information on Torah Readings.  I am also grateful for the calendar information and the date converter.

In addition to the weekly Shabbat aliyot breakdown, could you please also list the aliyot read on Mondays and Thursdays?  I lost my luach recently, and had trouble figuring out the aliyot read on a recent Monday.   With this information you will make the Torah reading information more comprehensive than it already is. 


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

Avraham Eisen 5 months ago • updated 5 months ago 0

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.

Enhancement request: Combine multiple items into one entry

chadisr 8 months ago 0

Enhancement request:

Currently, if several items on the settings page are selected multiple calendar entries are generated. This adds clutter to the calendar. I would like this enhancement:

If a day would have multiple calendar items, then combine them into one entry for that day.

I think that if a CSV is being generated then this might be too complicated. But you should be able to do that for an ICS (iCalendar) file, which is supported by many calendar clients.

If you do that then the Subject of the entry could be "Hebcal: <Hebrew date> [<Holiday name>].

Thank you for considering this idea and for the good product.
