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 david.renee.shaw@gmail.com [david.renee.shaw@gmail.com]

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
