To make a change to a Yahrzeit + Anniversary calendar calendar, delete or unsubscribe from the calendar. Return to Hebcal.com and re-enter in all of the event details, then download again. Hebcal does not yet support editing event dates.

To avoid storing sensitive user data on our servers, Hebcal.com recently modified our Yahrzeit + Anniversary calendar export to “download” instead of “subscribe” calendars. This change affects Yahrzeit + Anniversary calendars created on Hebcal beginning in January 2014, and it applies across iOS, Mac Desktop, Microsoft Outlook, etc.

To make changes like adding a new Yahrzeit or removing one depends on when you downloaded your data from Hebcal.

  • If you “subscribed” to a Yahrzeit + Anniversary calendar (before Jan 2014), delete/unsubscribe from the calendar. Return to Hebcal.com and re-enter in all of the data, then download again.
  • If you “downloaded” (Jan 2014 and later), then any Yahrzeit or Anniversary reminders are now part of your regular calendar (often called “Home” or “Calendar”). To add new events, just go to Hebcal.com and create reminders and download again. To remove events, search for the event(s) in your regular calendar and simply remove them.

Note that this recent change does not apply to regular holiday calendars. Those still offer the “subscribe” functionality.
