    This method of calculating sof zman Shma is considered a mistaken understanding of the proper calculation of this zman in the opinion of Rav Yitzchal Silber's Sha'aos Shavos Balalacha. On pages 316-318 he discusses Rav Yisrael Harfenes's calculations and points to his seeming agreement that using fixed local chatzos as the focal point is problematic. See Yisrael Vehazmanim page 57. While the Yisrael Vehazmanim mentions this issue in vol. 1, it was not corrected in the calculations in vol. 3 and other parts of the sefer. A competent rabbinical authority should be consulted before using this zman. Instead, the use of ComplexZmanimCalendar.getSofZmanShma3HoursBeforeChatzos() should be used to calculate sof zman Tfila using using 3 fixed clock hours. This will likely be removed in v3.0.
    As per a conversation Rabbi Yisroel Twerski had with Rabbi Harfenes, this zman published in the Yisrael Vehazmanim was based on a misunderstanding and should not be used. This deprecated method will be removed (likely in v3.0) pending confirmation from Rabbi Harfenes.
