Due to popular demand, we’ve added support for Chanukah candle-lighting times.

If you specify a city for Shabbat and Yom Tov candle lighting times, you’ll see Chanukah candle lighting show up as a timed event. If you don’t enable candle-lighting times (and instead choose the generic Diaspora or Israel locations) you’ll see Chanukah events show up as all-day (untimed) events reminding you to light candles that evening.

Candle-lighting times should show up on all iCalendar feeds (Google Calendar, Microsoft Outlook, iPhone, etc) when the application refreshes Hebcal events. This could take up to a week for the refresh, depending on the app.

We’re pleased to offer Jewish holiday downloads for many Android devices through a two step process that sends Hebcal data first to Google Calendar, and then to your Android phone or tablet.

Note that Hebcal is not an app for Android (in the Google Play sense of apps that you install). Rather, Hebcal is a website that allows you to download/export calendar data to the calendar application that comes natively with your device.

1. Follow our Google Calendar Jewish holidays download instructions.

2. Go back to your Android device and enable synchronization to Google Calendar. Here are “Sync & display calendars” instructions for specific versions of Android:

Note that there appears to be a limitation in Android calendar where events more than one year in the future will NOT sync to your device. The events are visible on the Google Calendar on the Web but will not download to the device until the current date approaches more closely.

See these articles for more detail:

How do I sync Google Calendar events that occur more than one year in the future?
