Pocket Luach is an application that converts Jewish dates to and from regular dates. It also displays the name and dates of Jewish holidays and Jewish significant days. Pocket Luach displays the name of the Parasha read on Shabat and holidays.

WARNING: iPhone or Touch OS 7.0 or above is required.

* Convert any date from the Jewish Calendar to/from the Civil Calendar
* Display all jewish holidays and significant Jewish events in history
* Display the name of the torah section read on Shabat, Jewish holidays, and Rosh Hodesh
* iPhone Pocket Luach settings tab available to configure the many features of the software

* A Siddur view displays the prayers for morning, afternoon, & evening services. it also displays the prayers after a meal or snack and the prayer said while traveling.
Coming in next update (awaiting Apple's approval): a Month View

Check also the Deluxe version which adds many features (among other features: add your own notes and remember your own important dates).

Other solutions exist on the web with similar functionalities but require a live internet access and/or a desktop computer to work. Also, the very fact that they require a live internet connection makes them very slow to use.

Being a native iPhone application, Pocket Luach allows for quick and simple conversion of dates on the go. This is useful for any observant Jew or for Gentiles doing business with observant Jews. For instance, with Pocket Luach, one can quickly make sure a proposed date for an appointment does not fall on a Jewish holiday before finalizing the date.

Missing 9th of AV?!?!


I've used this Luach for years, and overall I've been happy with it. But for August 2016it lists Tu B'Av (which, frankly, I hadn't even known was a thing) but has no indication that Tisha B'Av is a fast day. Major fail, guys, especially when it falls on Shabbat and fast time guidelines are needed. The app doesn't seem to have a bug report function, so I'm saying it here.



This app is great!
After installing latest update I have numbers, which increase every time after the app was opened. Cannot clear the number. Please advise

Don’t Waste Your Money


Yes, it gives you the times for davening, candle lighting, etc... within the app., but you are unable to export anything to iCalendar. The unpaid version used to allow this, but it doesn’t work now. That’s why I purchased this version. Wasted money.
