CalJ Plugin for WordPress


I am excited to present my WordPress Plugin for the Shabbat Times. If you run a congregation’s Website with WordPress, you may now show the Zmanim for your town to your visitors and the name of the weekly Parasha.

It is shipped as a shortcode which you can use as follows:

Shabbat begins [ caljshabbat val="shabbat.begins" ], Ends [ caljshabbat val="shabbat.ends" ]

which would print this:

Shabbat begins 19:12, Ends 20:14

You can install it from the official WordPress plugins repository:

or directly from the Dashboard page of you Website.

You will need to register (free) to obtain an API key.

The available data for the Shortcode are:

  • "shabbat.jday" : 17
  • "shabbat.jmonthName" : Nissan
  • val="shabbat.jmonthName" lang="he" : ניסן
  • "shabbat.jyear" : 5780
  • "" : New York City
  • val="shabbat.parasha" :
  • [ caljshabbat lang=ru val=shabbat.parasha] :
  • "shabbat.begins" : 19:12
  • "shabbat.ends" : 20:14
  • val="shabbat.endsHour12" : 8
  • "dafyomi.string" : שבת לג

Feel free to contact me if you need any help implementing the plugin on your Website, or if you wish to suggest improvements.

שבת שלום,
