hdate - displays Hebrew date information for a given Gregorian/Julian date

coordinates: -l [NS]yy[.yyy] -L [EW]xx[.xxx]

hdate translates the specified date to the Hebrew calendar and optionally displays further
information about that Hebrew date, including holidays and astronomical-related times (see
section LOCATION, below). If no arguments are given, it displays information for the
current date. If a single numeric argument is given, it will be interpreted as a year, and
hdate will output the requested information for all days of that year. If two numeric
arguments are given, it will be interpreted as mm yyyy, and hdate will output the
requested information for all days of that month.
INPUTTING A HEBREW DATE: If the year provided is greater than 3000, hdate will interpret
the given date as a Hebrew date, and will display information for the corresponding
Gregorian date. Hebrew months are expected to be passed as numbers 1-12 for Tishrei -
Elul; Adar I and Adar II are expected to be passed as months 13 and 14.
INPUTTING A JULIAN DAY: If a single numeric argument is provided, and it is greater than
348021, hdate will interpret it as the "Julian day number" and will display information
for the corresponding Hebrew date.

If you want hdate to display accurate time-of-day information, hdate requires location and
time zone information in order to make astronomical calculations for a given date. If you
don't provide ANY such information, hdate uses your computer's local time zone information
as an indicator, and either picks a city in that time zone, or defaults to the equator at
the center of that time zone. If hdate can't even retrieve time zone information from your
computer, it defaults to Tel-Aviv. For other locations, use the -l -L option pair. For
other timezones, use the -z option. Co-ordinates and standard time zones for some common
locations are listed below.
The current defaults include:
Timezone Default city Lattitude Longitude
-5 New York City 40 -74
0 London 51 0
1 Paris 48 2
2 Tel-Aviv 32 34
