Google Calendar adds Hebrew calendar dates


Google announced today that it’s added a Hebrew calendar to Google Calendar that will allow users to display Hebrew calendar dates and holidays next to Gregorian dates: 

If you use the Gregorian calendar, it seems like Jewish holidays fall on different dates every year. That’s because Jewish holidays follow the Hebrew calendar, a lunisolar calendar used by many Hebrew speakers around the world that bases its months on lunar cycles and its years on solar cycles.

The feature is available starting today to users on the web. You can enable it by navigating to Settings, General, Alternate calendar and selecting “Hebrew calendar.”
