Yahrzeit Candle app not posting to facebook, setting changes not saved

David Golden 7 years ago updated by Michael J. Radwin 10 months ago 2
I have been using this app for quite a few years now on Facebook, I get the email reminder but earlier this ear I noticed the reminders were not getting posted to Facebook. I went to the app and checked my setting and saw the post to Facebook was unchecked, I checked it and thought I fixed the problem.

I didn't check my email this past weekend and I don't see the items posted to my timeline and I missed the Yahrzeit lighting for my mother. I went back to the app to recheck the settings and the Facebook was unchecked AGAIN. I placed a check in it and went back to Facebook and then went back to the app and the check was once again removed.

There is no save setting button so how do I get the app to save the setting changes I make?

In addition, Yahrzeit and anniversary calendar downloads for Apple, Google & Outlook now support more than 3 names. Just click the “+ Add another name” button to create another row and enter the additional details.

I am moving. How to change on Google Calendar

Henry London 7 years ago updated 7 years ago 3
I am moving. I have Hebcal set up for my Google Calendar for 2015-2019. I want to know how to remove all the Hebcal times from the date of the move forward, and then to get the times for the new location from the date of the move.
I am trying not to lose past events.

Pesach 2016

Ryan Watson 7 years ago updated by Michael J. Radwin 7 years ago 1

Hi, I hope someone can help me out. I'm new to the Moedim and I want to honour them faithfully.
Some groups are saying Pesach is in March, while other groups such as this one, are dating it in April. Can someone explain why the difference?


Put the day next to the date for every single day.

Michael Smith 7 years ago updated by Michael J. Radwin 7 years ago 1
There is a lot of place to add the day (Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri, Sat, Sun) next to the date for every single day. Put this feature as another option one could select.
Thanks for sharing this calender, it is great.

Chanukah candle lighting times inconsistent

Aron Adler 6 years ago updated 3 years ago 3

I am trying to get the Chanukah candle lighting times to display correctly on my website (

I want to display it based on the user's IP address. I retrieve the user's coordinates via plugging their IP address into the freegeoip API.

I am testing it with location set to Jerusalem by manually plugging in latitude 31.7833 and longitude 35.2167, which is what Google returns for Jerusalem. However for today this returns a time of 5:47pm, whereas returns a time of 5:25pm.

Any idea as to where this discrepancy comes from?



Mevarchim Chodesh

Is it possible to show when it is mevarchim chodesh from the API? I can see there's a provision for it starting on line 462 of the file, but I don't see a way to call it from the REST API


candle lighting

My calendar on my apple computer shows holidays, dates of Rosh Chodesh, days of the Omer, and names of weekly parsha- but no candle lighting time. How can I add that?

Can I import more than a one year calendar to outlook

David Englander 6 years ago updated by durgazone 5 years ago 2

I was able to create a calendar and then subscribe so I can view it in outlook, but it is only a one year calendar and I want to be able to see Hebrew dates etc. a few years into the future. How do I do that?
