Question:


How can you know when to pray or when Shabbat starts/ends if you live near the North Pole and the sun may not shine (or not stop shining) for several months a year? Thanks, AlaskaMan


Answer:


AskMoses does not rule on matters of Jewish Law - Halachah. You can try http://www.star-k.org/kashrus/kk-whendoesonepraywhenthereisnoday.htm about this question. AskMoses provides this as an informational service only, but does not endorse outside websites, nor vouch for the accuracy of their information. As in all questions of Jewish Law, a rabbi well versed in these laws should be consulted.
