I am planning on giving a shiur to teenagers over shavuos about how to be a gabbai. Part of it would include comparing/contrasting the luach of different customs. So far, I will probably compare some dates in Ezras Torah and Luach Colel Chabad. I am wondering if there are any others out there I should be including? Is there a Luach (or 2,3?) for the Eidot Mizrach Communities? Other Chasidish Communities?
IMO the most important parts of being a gabbai are the inter personal

Is there any halachic (or safety) concern having a pizza maker go on Yom tov by a timer for 2 hours?

An interesting aspect of this may be to show them how to see all the calendar basics from the charts in the Tur after Hilchos Rosh Chodesh.

not only can you have the timer set to go on, but you can even have the timer in the plug on shabbos with all the little tabs set on off and then shavous night, flip them up to make it go on the next day. im not a posek but i think that this is ok.

If the timer is set to off and you flip the switch that's a grama?

I guess ask your LOR?

no, if you flip the little tabs to go on the next day its grama. flipping it to go on now is not ok.

I think that there is a lot of thinking happening here, mostly mistaken thinking.
I think someone should ask a LOR.

#1 it may not be muktza if its muttar to flip the tabs and even if it was,
#2 its letzaruch gufo and since its only a kli shemilachto le'issur its muttar to move

grama means that, to be loose, that its indirect. because by moving the tabs your only causing the lever to hit the switch 12 hours later and turn on the appliance, its a grama.

There are definitely cases where some authorities allow manipulation of a mechanical timer however it is a sensitive matter and every scenario can be different.

In my case I'm fine using a 7-Day timer so I don't have to manipulate it however a question I have is regarding the red and green lights going on and off on the cover of the pizza maker if that is happening as a direct result of opening / closing the pizza maker
