Birthday in Adar II and also Gregorian Leap Year - Wrong Conversion date

abrapike 6 months ago updated by Michael J. Radwin 5 months ago 3

Hi


Seems to be a bug, I entered a Hebrew Birthday 27th Adar II 5736, the conversion date comes out March 29th 1976, the actual birthday was March 30th.


1976 was also a Gregorian Leap year, so the dates (after Feb 29th) if calculated correctly should be shifted +1 day

Hi, thanks for using Hebcal.

We believe the date conversions provided by Hebcal are correct. 

The 27th of Adar II, 5736 was in fact Monday, 29 March 1976.

Tuesday, 30 March 1976 corresponds to the 28th of Adar II, 5736.

Gregorian leap years are already correctly accounted for in date conversions. For example, note the date conversions for February 28 and February 29 in 1976:

If you can find another date conversion source that disagrees with our calculations, please post the reference here so we can investigate further.

Hi, we are checking back in. We are still sure our calculations are correct, but just in case, were you able to find another source that offers an alternative calculation?
