'Shabbos in the Kitchen' is a series of eight excellent shiurim in which we learn the correct way to prepare and to serve both hot and cold food on Shabbos.  Rochel has taught us complex halochos inventively, using practical examples which we all can relate to. Who would have thought that setting out a plate of cold cuts with garnishes, on Shabbos morning, involves the awareness and application of six melochos? Kol hakavod Rochel and thank you.

A really enjoyable and practical way for learning Bishul and other connected  melachos of Shabbos in the kitchen. Rebbetzen Stefanskys positive outlook can make Shabbos so much easier.  A nice group atmosphere and you even get to gain some recipe and cooking tips.

Very informative in a well presented manner and also entertaining. Not to be missed.

Shabbos in the kitchen has improved my knowledge and focus on what is permitted in the kitchen on shabbos.  The course is fun but at the same time clear, useful and concise.  Examples and ideas are shared by the group giving another dimension to new dishes and menus. 

A must for all housewives!!

These r my thoughts which I share with every attendee I meet in the street because not only have I learned so much I also meet some new woman who made me laugh 

I learned lots of new things but I also finally learned why I was doing them !!!

And I learned lots things I thought u were not allowed to do that u actually were ...

I enjoyed the course very much

I can't wait for another course to join 

Thanks Rochel xxxx

It was a real eye-opener to do the course to learn how many מלאכות are involved in serving and preparing a shabbos meal. Some examples are סחיטה דישה and מעבד.  What I also found interesting to learn and hadn't known exactly how to go about was adding mayo / oil ( לישה ) to mashed egg,  liver and tuna. It was a very necessary course and I can see now how important it is to go through these הלכות regularly.  Now that we all have completed our work book we can look up the halochos  when in doubt.

This course equips you to deal with shbs in the kitchen so efficiently! It enhances one's shmiras shbs in a beautiful way. One feels empowered by the knowledge amassed whilst doing this very practical and well presented course, The pictures bring real life examples and makes it easier to understand. . . A very worthwhile investment!   

 

Thank you for your wonderful classes. It had been a privilege to attend your vibrant and positive sessions. For me, the paradigm of Hilchos Shabbos has shifted away from a long list of do's and don'ts (which needed to be memorised = lost case) to a group of simple concepts that can easily be applied to most situations. I have moved away from "I'm anyway doing it wrong" to "I've got this and am probably doing this right"!

You have a tremendous zechus. Hatzlacha for your future classes.

What an eye opener of a course; Shabbos in the kitchen has really taught me a lot!

Good morning. Just wanted to thank you again for the course. Really enjoyed it . Didn’t know what to expect. Learning Halacha can at times be quite dry but you bring it all to life with clear , practical, real examples. And you teach it in such a warm , jolly , non- judgmental manner .😍 it became fun and not just important.

Also I love the work books with their dictated notes - they will be so good for future reference Thank you again. Ginni Steinberg x

Thank you so much Rochel...it really was a wonderful, informative course. We really appreciate all your effort and amazing teaching, Natalie Zemmel xx

Thanks again for a wonderful learning experience for us all.  
You really make the subject come alive and fun to learn. Ruthy Portnoy Xx

Apologies everyone , I will not be attending tonight , thank you all very much for the fab class though , great group to share it with and thank you rebetzen for the wonderful way you teach , I think it actually went in this time.Gabby Benson !

It's just amazing!
I really think of what we have learnt throughout shabbos. This past shabbos I realised I better use a bigger towel for the water that spilt and the towel rack in the bathroom took all the towels off when it was hot!
The booklet is brilliant the pictures, stickers and writing it down helps me remember it well!

Dear Rebbetzen Rochel תחי
Yes you ARE a Rebbetzen in your own right! And not just because you husband is a Rov.
I can't thank you enough for all I've learnt from you over the last few weeks. I can't wait to do your next course!
B'h I'm fortunate to have grown up in a home with דקדוק הלכה. I'm also married bH to a wonderful husband who 'specialises' in הלכה and and answers many שאלות including הלכות שבת, and still I feel my שבת has been greatly upgraded since learning with you.
Thank you for empowering us ladies and enabling us to experience a new level of מנוחות הנפש and מנוחת שבת.
May we be זוכה to see the ultimate יום שכולו שבת במהרה בימינו אמן !
Love
A פרייליכע חנוכה

I learnt so much from both Rochel Stefansky’s “Shabbos in the Kitchen” and “Shabbos Morning Saga”.  Rachel is an amazing educator and has a unique way of teaching which is very engaging, informative and fun. I recommend this course to everyone, whether you have good knowledge of Hilchos Shabbos or are new to it.  There is something for everyone to learn and improve their Hilchos Shabbos.

Loved the courses and was fabulous that could do it in my own time as I was working at the zoom times! Would recommend them! Yocheved Spitzer

I have really benefited from Rebetzen Stefansky's Shabbos Course which made me aware of broader concerns
of so many aspects relating to Hilchois Shabbos.
I came aware with many clear points so clearly laid out and presented in a clear and concise manner.
The content of this Course has done so much to enhance our Kedushas Shabbos.

 

Thank you Rebetzen Stefansky for all you time and efforts and very much looking forward to learn more from  you IYH.

Best,
