It’s summer, a time when people are on the road for one reason or another, and often away from home for Shabbat. Whether it’s on vacation, going to see the kids at camp or visiting family, knowing the shifting times for Shabbat candle-lighting can be tricky.

Enter the “Shabbat Times” mobile app. Available for both iOS and Android, the app offers easy access to Shabbat and holiday candle-lighting start and end times. Seamlessly interacting with the phone’s location, it automatically offers Shabbat times based on where a user happens to be.

A handy “how to” guide, complete with the blessings, is just a flick away. The app allows users to easily share candle-lighting times via text, email or social media with their friends and family.

The app also offers the weekly Torah portion, providing access to’s rich library of parshah content.

Since its debut, the “Shabbat Times” app has been installed on more than 150,000 devices and continues to attract new users each week.

Shabbat Times was made available free of charge by the generous partnership of Dovid and Malkie Smetana, Alan and Lori Zekelman, the Meromim Fund, and Moris and Lillian Tabacinic.
