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?

@Scimonster My answer is assuming he has such functions (his question seemed to be emphasizing the need to calculate time differences as opposed to the actual conversion. I therefore assumed he already had such functions).

So how does the library know if I want Tishri of this year or the next?

@Scimonster Is that sarcasm I detect?

Nice library. But don't you still need to account for wrapping years like I did in my answer?

What do you mean by "have month(s) or years added to it according to the hebrew calendar". Can you add examples to your question?
