comment Making a bracha on food which is normally assur, but allowed due to pikuach nefesh
"(Are there any cases where you bentch but don't say the earlier b'racha, after all?)" - Actually Bentching is in its own category in many cases because it is mandated on the Torah level (דאורייתא). Not saying anything about this case though (still didn't do any research), but just pointing it out...

comment Hebrew Calender API/Library in PHP or Javascript to add days, month or years to Julian date
My code also assumes that Nisan == 1. The problem is that the year doesn't start at 1, it starts at 7. So if we take (y/m/d) 5773/6/1 and add 1 we get 5773/7/1. Which is not correct! It should be 5774/7/1. Does your code handle this?
