Shana Tova!


Great. Closing this as fixed.

Hi rbyaffe, we're checking back in to see if Google Calendar eventually refreshed your personal yahrzeit/anniversary calendar?

Shana tova!

Hi, thanks for your question.

This behavior is by design. The Shabbat API always displays the current week's information, including both Friday and Saturday, even if Friday has already passed. No, there is no way to change this behavior by specifying different start/end parameters.

If you want control over date ranges please instead use our Jewish calendar API and specify start and end parameters. The returned JSON is nearly identical to the Shabbat API so it should be easy to transition to this supported API.

thanks for contacting Hebcal!

If you are able to create a translation of many names of holidays and sections of the Torah we would be delighted to offer Ukrainian. Do you have the time and expertise to help?

You would want to make a copy of an existing translation file, perhaps Russian, and use a tool like Poedit to create the Ukrainian translations

Then, when you finish, you can post it as a file attachment here, as a GitHub pull request, or email the file to webmaster@hebcal.com

Thanks again and Shana tova!

Thanks for using Hebcal.

Thanks for the suggestion to add a calendar feed for Mishna Berura Yomi; we will consider this idea for the future.

Shana Tova!

Thanks for using Hebcal and thanks for posting your question here.

We don't currently have an option to display the day of the week on the Hebrew Date calendar feed. Thanks for the suggestion; we will consider this idea for the future.


Shana Tova! 

Glad you got it working.


Yes, the major difference is parameters to control options. The Shabbat API attempts to keep things extremely simple (which means less flexibility). The Jewish calendar API is much more full-featured.

Hi, quick response: yes, indeed, this is by design. The Shabbat API always displays both Friday and Saturday, even if Friday has already passed.

No, there is no way to change this behavior.

If you want more control over date ranges use our Jewish calendar API and specify start and end parameters. The returned JSON is nearly identical to the Shabbat API so it should be easy to transition to this alternate API

Thanks for posting Evan!

We were curious so we did a bit more investigation on our end and actually we were able to reproduce your original problem on a Windows 11 PC using Excel 2021. Much to our huge surprise, a current version of Windows and a current version of Excel continue to have this issue. They are not handling UTF-8 (Unicode) CSV files correctly!

To help to remedy this situation, we have made a change to our CSV file export. We now include a Unicode Byte Order Mark at the beginning of the CSV file which helps Windows to detect that the CSV file contains Unicode data. This should improve CSV file imports for Hebrew and other languages the Hebcal.com website supports (Russian, Spanish, French, Polish, Hungarian, etc)

If you download a fresh CSV file from Hebcal.com today you may find that the Hebrew text now shows up correctly in Excel. (You may need to download it again in an Incognito/Private browser window to ensure that you aren't getting a cached version of the file.)
