Erev Shabbos #17- Travel Help

I haven't owned a Shabbos calendar in three years, unfortunately. It seems that when I threw out my last one, I forgot to reorder, and as such, I haven't gotten one for three years consecutively. So, I had to find another way to figure out when candle lighting for Shabbos is, as well as shkiya (sunset).

Then I discovered a phenomenal website that has every time and halachic hour one could wish for. They have a phone service, a text service, and an omer service, all to help any person everywhere in the world. Just type in a zip code, or a city, and MyZmanim will find it for you.
Better yet, they now have every specific place in Israel- new on the bottom of the page!

The technological age helps us so much- this is just one wonderful example.

So, this Shabbos, candle lighting is at 6:48.
Gut Shabbos Everyone!

I use myzmanim too, have been doing so for at least a year. I love it! It is so useful and easy to use; especially in small places for which no calendar are available.
Shavua tov.

Ilana- totally- that's exactly why I found it the most useful. I used to travel a lot- and this made it so easy to figure out! Plus, their texting service is very simple to use.
