Shabbat times are different then chabad.org times

chaim 1 year ago updated by Michael J. Radwin 1 year ago 1

I noticed that the shabbat times are a bit different the those times on chabad.org

why is that? and is there a way to input which minhag you want the times to display via the REST API?

Hi, thanks for using Hebcal!

Differences of 1-2 minutes between Hebcal and other sources publishing candle lighting times or sunset times are expected. Remember that candle lighting times can only be approximated based on location.


This article explains in some detail why you may see differences in candle lighting times between Hebcal and other sources:
