I just want you to know that the alerts have helped me—a busy lady—find the time to daven mincha more frequently and also daven shacharis on time. This is technology helping our avodas Hashem.

I was saved many times from missing zman krias shema thanks to MyZmanim Alerts.
    — Mendel Ginsberg, Brooklyn, NY
We made aliyah, we couldn’t be gladder | But coming to shul late can make anyone sadder | Although we don’t miss a thing from chutz la’aretz, al kol panim | We had to bring you along, yasher koach MyZmanim.
    — Refoel Aryeh Smith, Ramat Beit Shemesh, Israel
It’s a comfort to know that no matter where I am in the world, I can count on MyZmanim to provide me with the necessary information to function as an observant Jew.
    — Sholom Twerski, Phoenix, AZ
אני נסעתי מניו יורק לאוסטריה בלילות הקיץ הקצרים, הנסיעה התחילה מבעוד יום אחר שהתפללתי מנחה, אבל חשבתי שלתפילת מעריב יש עוד זמן ולבינתיים נרדמתי. כשנתעוררתי ראיתי שכבר החשיך הלילה, הוצאתי את לוח-הזמנים שקבלתי ע"י מאי-זמנים, ועל פיו נודעתי שיש לי עוד פחות מחצי שעה להתפלל מעריב. מיד הודעתי זאת ליהודי אחר שנסע באווירון, וגם הוא לא שם לב לזה מקודם שזמן תפילת מעריב כה קצר, ושנינו מיהרנו להתפלל, ועד שהסתדרנו אחר מעריב כבר ראינו כי האיר השחר, ורק הודות ללוח הזמנים שלכם הסתפקנו להתפלל בעוד מועד.
    — חבר מכון בעלז, ברוקלין, ניו יורק

As a military officer, your amazing service has helped me while stationed in Germany, Afghanistan, and all over the planet. I just finished a short deployment with the Hungarian Air Force, where I was completely reliant on MyZmaim for Shabbos times, zmanei tefillah, and more.
    — Ch. Maj. Joseph Friedman, Denver CO
As a mohel who travels across Europe and Asia, I often lookup Alos/Netz & Shkia times on MyZmanim to know what time I can do a bris in a particular city. Right now I'm in Tyumen, and you came through for me again!
    — Mordechai Tzvi Solomon, Mohel based in Basel, Switzerland
Incredible website. And your explanation of davening direction is first class.

My partner is in Freetown, Sierra Leone for his third consecutive Shabbos. Thanks to MyZmanim, he knows when Shabbos begins and ends. You've enabled yet another Jew to keep Shabbos properly.
    — M.B., Brooklyn NY
There was a mock version produced of the New York Times in 100 years from now, with headlines about robot rights etc. In the bottom corner were candle lighting times! The Irish editor explained that as long as the world exists, Jews will be lighting Shabbos candles somewhere. I am jealous of your share in shemiras Shabbos worldwide.
    — Rabbi Elisha Paul, Stamford, Connecticut
MyZmanim has been there for me ever since I started laying tefillin again after many years of not doing so. Your daily emails for earliest tallis and tefillin helped me get back on track!
    — Anonymous donor, Brooklyn, NY
I myself have been saved by MyZmanim Sefirah Alerts several times already, and I'm sure thousands have had the same. How many potential deoraisas do we do altogether? What a zechus.
    — Rabbi Asher E. from Sanhedria, Yerushalayim
I never realized how small the “window of opportunity” can be when davening on the plane. I looked out the window at the time MyZmanim noted should be alos, and was fascinated to see alos happen before my eyes. What a service!
    — Herschel W., Brooklyn, NY
If the Internet was created just for MyZmanim — dayenu!

    — אליעזר גרינבוים, נתניה ארץ ישראל

When I tried checking zmanim recently, the site seemed to be down and I was afraid MyZmanim went out of business. I felt bad that I hadn't contributed to help keep it running. As soon as I received the email that the site was back up, I decided to show my support by making a donation.
