How old is creation?

ezeribe Nedu 2 years ago updated by iSR48L 2 years ago 1

Your calendar indicates we are in the 5778th Year since Creation. Is there some resource that can help me understand how we settled on this, please?

How does Hebcal calculate the holidays for the years before rosh hashanah postponements were in place?

MPP 2 years ago updated by rayoflight 1 year ago 5

When Hebcal calculates the holidays 1000 years ago or more, does Hebcal take into account the fact that postponement rules were only condified by Maimonides in the 12th century? So if I were to go to 160 BC, during the Maccabean revolt, would the calendar accurate predict when Sukkot and the first Hannukah fell?

HebCal Dashboard Widget

quark613 2 years ago updated 1 year ago 1

The HebCal Dashboard widget is now completely blank, no data at all, not connecting.  Is there any hope it will be restored?  I use it all the time. (I posted this under a previous issue but that was 3 years ago and the topic says "Fixed," which it most definitely is not.)

Is there a way to get the shabat times API work for a specific date (and not only for "now")?

EyalP 2 years ago updated 2 years ago 0

I'm testing the API and want to see how the results will look like for different dates or different jewish holidays. Is it possible to request a specific date?

How can I remove Hebcal from calendar if it was downloaded directly instead of subscribed?

toastislove 2 years ago 0

I downloaded Hebcal to my google calendar instead of subscribing. It is now integrated into my main calendar and I can't get rid of it. I would like the dates, but I want to be able to turn them on and off ... right now all I can see is the Hebcal dates and I can't see any of my own appointments. It is a real problem.
