Recipe Roundup for the Nine Days

As you may know, the first nine days of the Jewish month of Av are characterized by some traditional mourning-style activities, because the 9th of Av concludes with a fast day for the destruction of the First and Second Temples. This year, the nine days begins Sunday night, July 11th. In addition to people not wearing new clothes, Jews typically refrain from doing unnecessary laundry, getting haircuts, listening to music, and even eating meat. That's where Classically Kosher comes in.

Here's a roundup of various Nine Days-friendly recipes so you won't have to eat pizza the whole time (not that there's anything wrong with that). I hope they will provide some helpful ideas for menu-preparation!

  1. Thanks for these recipes. You have given me some good ideas. Tonight, we have an early barbecue, then we get to the milchigs.

    I like your variety.
