Tired of always forgetting whether the Hebrew month right now is Iyar or Nisan? Dying to know if your birthday this year falls in Sivan or Tamuz? Or maybe you  want to impress your rabbi?

Google just rolled out a Hebrew calendar function on its Google Calendar, enabling users to display Hebrew dates alongside the Gregorian ones.  Announced week ago, the feature is available on the Internet only and doesn’t display on Google’s mobile calendar app.

According to  TheNextWeb.com,  Google’s Hebrew calendar setting comes on the heels of a similar Persian one. Google also has Chinese and Islamic calendar options.

To enable the feature, go into Settings, select “Hebrew calendar” as an “Alternate Calendar” under the “General” tab. (via JTA)
