Why doesn't iCal show Passover on the holiday calendars? I know its a religious versus a U.S. national holiday, however i would think a few of the more "important" religious holidays should be on. After all Easter Sunday is.....

i think I'm annoyed....fully realizing that many religious holidays of differing religions aren't on either.....but Passover????

hmph!!! :(

By iCal do you mean the built in calendar app on the iPhone/iPad?

My iPhone calendar is hooked up to my Yahoo calendar in which I can choose to see Jewish holidays. The holidays show up on my iPhone but for some reason they don't show up on the iPad.

elan,
I have an iMac which has a built in "calendar"app. and is also sync to my iPhone (4S). And, no, neither of them contain any reference to Passover on the calendars. yeah, I could find calendars on Yahoo/Google etc... however, am just being annoyed that the Apple calendar doesn't have them...


:(

thx

What's far more shocking is that they offer 132 different downloadable calendars including an Islamic calendar, a Bulgarian Orthodox calendar, a Finnish holidays calendar, but no Jewish calendar.

Fortunately, there's a great alternative. Use a custom created Jewish calendar from the hebcal website, using these instructions: http://www.hebcal.com/home/79/apple-ical-import-hebcal-jewis...

It will list every Jewish holiday, and even candle-lighting times for your location. And it shows the dates in both English and Hebrew.

And it's free!
