home assistant jewish calendar times are calculated wrong

Hi all.

I’m kind of new with the home assistent SW, but i must say it’s really great SW.

i’m trying to use the jewish calendar, but the times calculated wrong (time for hadlakat nerot is wrong and all the others).

I’m working with home assistent on VM.

HA version - 0.101.3.

The time and date are showed correctly.

for example, i’m getting the times for lighting candle in the upcoming shabbat as - 14:07:00+00:00 while the correct hour is 16:23.

All other times in jewish calendar are wrong as well.

Am i missing something?

my configuration file:
