      Yes, unfortunately. HebCal, which a number of readers mentioned on facebook, syncs with your calendar on your mobile devices. I use that to know when chagim are, candle lighting time, etc. However this just displays the date and unfortunately that doesn’t seem to sync up to the mobile view.

  2. his is terrific! I am a Google Calendar fanatic and this will really help me. Thanks!

  3. This is great news to me. Thanks Mara. From what I see though, we are not able to have the repeat option for a Hebrew date , right? (like for a yahrzeit for example)

  4. Love! Thanks!
