Advice on Nine Days

א' אב ה' אלפים תש"ע




Dear All,

The custom is that meat is not eaten and grape juice/wine not drunk during the Nine Days that run from Rosh Chodesh Menachem Av until after midday on the day after Tisha B’Av.

This year, the period commences at sunset on Sunday evening July 11 (approx 5pm in Melbourne) and ends midday (around 1pm in Melbourne) on Wednesday July 21. Meat and wine is consumed on Shabbos.

We have consulted the various restaurants under our supervision that serve ‘Nine Days friendly’ cuisine & here are the results:

1)      Cafe Amalya (milchig & pareve) - 621 Glen Huntly Rd, Caulfield, 9523 8206

2)      Cafe Nogga (milchig & pareve) - 294 Carlisle Street, Balaclava, open for dinner from Monday 12 July until Tisha B’Av, 9527 1214

3)      Chick Chicken (usually fleishig, TBA) - 55 Kooyong Rd, Caulfield, 9509 5429

4)      Daneli’s (special fish menu) -  328A Carlisle St, Balaclava, 9527 7014

5)      Glicks (milchig & pareve) various locations, Balacalva, Elsternwick, Bentleigh, Sth Melbourne, CBD, Bondi Junction, St Ives

6)      Kimberly Gardens (special menu) - 441 Inkerman Street, East St Kilda, 9526 3865

7)      Laffa Bar (usually fleishig, TBA) - 338 Hawthorn Road, Caulfield, 9532 7888

8)      Shemesh Pizza (milchig) -  813 Glenhuntly Road, Caulfield South, 9523 0444

I hope that this will be of assistance.


We have been receiving many queries regarding Greenseas tuna and the Kosher status of cans that carry the OU symbol and now list crustaceans and milk products in the ingredient list. This issue was addressed in a February Kosher Korner that these are merely allergen warnings and the products are Kosher certified by the OU (pareve).
