Rosh Chodesh Elul

Dearest Ladies

Tonight and tomorrow, Shabbos and Sunday, is Rosh Chodesh, ushering in the new month of Elul. If it is Elul, then Rosh Hashana is but 4 weeks away and Yom Kippur just 10 days more.
This Shabbos even the birds are trembling, The past year, with all is sorrows and challenges has left everyone drained, and Elul is here just in time to give us renewed strength. The word is composed of El and lo, meaning “it has power”

All those who have passed on to the world of truth receive a special Koach, a power during Elul to daven and request mercy on behalf of us all. This Rosh Chodesh, all our deceased ancestors in Heaven arise to pray for us. Imagine our holy grandmothers and great-grandmothers standing up before Hashem to plead for us to be showered with good.
Rav Shimshon Pincus tells us that in Elul our tefillot, our prayers are twelve times more powerful than usual.

I am appealing to you special ladies to take on not speaking in shul at least during the mourners Kaddish and to say Amein to every brocha we hear. May this help us grow during this time and help our ancestors deepest prayers for us.

Chodesh Tov and may Elul be a month of inspiration to us all.

Shabbat Shalom and Chodesh Tov!

Good Shabbos from Rebbetzin Shaw
 Rebbetzin Renee Shaw

Dearest Ladies

Chodesh Tov to you all.

Chodesh Av is our most sombre month, which is why it is referred to as Menachem Av, where we ask Hashem to comfort and to console us. We pray for comfort and consolation because so many sad things happened to our people, wherever they were to be found over literally thousands of years. From biblical days through to the present. It seems as though this has always been a troubled time for Jews.

What can we the ladies of Sandton do to bring some positive energy to this negative period?

It may seem like something small but our Rabbis, especially the saintly Chofetz Chaim assured us of great benefits if we simply take a little extra care with our speech. What we say and how we say it can make a phenomenal difference to the spiritual energy that emanates from us and can impact on our destiny.

I would like to encourage each of us to take on an hour every day in which we undertake with no exception not to gossip or say anything bad about anyone and together to try and make a difference in the world and bring down blessing from heaven to our homes, families and Klal Israel.

Please feel free to send me the time you choose on Whatsapp or to email me. My number is 0713579607 and my email is []

Traditionally, except forShabboseswe don’t eat meat between Rosh Chodesh and the fast of the 9th of Av, next Sunday. I would love to share with you my recipe for Moroccan fishwhich is delicious and filling.

8 pieces of salmon, skinned and filleted
4 carrots
1 pepper julienned
¼ cup of oil
4 tablespoons of tomato sauce
2 tablespoons of parev chicken powder

Fry the carrots in oil. Place fish fillets on top and add peppers and pour sauce on top. Simmer for about 20 minutes covered with tinfoil.
It’s as easy as that.

I wish you a good Shabbos.

With love

Rebbetzin Renee Shaw
