Hebcal Integrated into outlook calendar

Erin 2 years ago updated by Michael J. Radwin 2 years ago 1

I am having a problem with a Hebcal that was downloaded to my outlook. It somehow became integrated into my outlook - which would normally be fine. However, it's in the wrong time zone and is displaying the incorrect time. The only way to fix is to manually go into each event and either delete or change the time zone. the problem is I have multiple years of events. Has anyone else encountered this issue?

Hi, thanks for using Hebcal. Sorry to hear about your difficulty with deleting multiple events.


When hebcal exports to CSV format, it puts the text "Hebcal" or “Jewish Holidays” in the Location or Description field. That is there to make it easy to remove entries from your calendar if you got the wrong settings. For example, if you were using candle-lighting times but entered the wrong zip code, you could follow these instructions to remove all of the incorrect entries:

  1. Open your Calendar and on the View menu point to Current Viewand click Events
  2. Click the Location column heading to sort the list of holidays by Location (you should see “Jewish Holidays” in the location field for the holidays that you imported from CSV)
  3. Click to select the first holiday you want to delete
  4. Hold down SHIFT and click the last holiday you want to delete
  5. Press DELETE to remove all the selected holidays from your Calendar

Here are similar instructions for Outlook desktop on Mac
