Firefox Plugin Review – Hebrew Calendar

Posted by: Rea Maor In: FireFox Related - Sunday, October 21st, 2007

The Hebrew Calendar plug-in for Firefox puts the current Hebrew date on the lunisolar calendar right in your status bar, and also comes with a set of nice features.

One of the handy features is a full-size calendar that opens in your browser, showing a handy co-relation between the Hebrew date and the goyim calendar date. It’s very easy to navigate in both “worlds”, for handy reference look-up. Maybe you can even send it to your Christmas-celebrating friends to help explain to them that when they wish you “Happy Chanukkah” on their Christmas eve, it’s actually about two weeks late for that.

That’s done in Javascript, by the way. Quite a feat of programming, I would imagine!

Other features include a converter dialog app, a Gematria converter (fans of Aronofsky’s PI rejoice!), and clipboard-copy functions.

I’d rank it as a tool you can’t do without, if you have to work a lot with Hebrew dates and language!

    …why?

    Good question… i’m Israeli, and we’re using (or used to use) the Hebrew Calendar, so i had nothing to write 🙂

    Why not?

    Seriously, it’s helpful for
    calculating dates. All Jewish Holidays use the Jewish Calendar. 80% of the world uses the Gregorian or some such thing.
    This plugin helps.
