can anyone supply any information about something apparently called shabbos gehinom?
I have never heard of this. What if any minhogim are there?
What does/should each family do for each other?
P.s I ask because my brother became a chasson and this strange term was bandied around. I hat asnything where such words has ‘gehionm’ are used.

No clue. Why don’t you ask whomever it was who spoke about it and please get back to us and enlighten us.
All I know about Shabbos and Gehinnom is that on Shabbos the fires of Gehinnom are turned off (for those who were Shomer Shabbos khilchaso including the time they kept Tosafos Shabbos)February 3, 2012 10:40 am at 10:40 am #849636ED IT ORParticipant

With all this talk, I am always reminded about how blessed I am that my in-laws and I got along perfectly from Day 1 and that my parents and stepmother get along with my wife perfectly.
Interestingly enough, the first time I met my future father-in-law was when he was sitting shiva for his father. Eeees and I had begun dating only a few weeks earlier and I had never met her father prior to the point when his father passed away.

“when the chosson eats by the kalla”
” first shabbos with his new mother in law “
Funny!February 3, 2012 6:06 pm at 6:06 pm #849644yaakov doeParticipant
Common knowledge that the term is used for the first Shabbos a chossen spends with his in laws. Usually said in a joking way, but even with the ideal in laws it can be tense.
I happen to have great in laws.February 3, 2012 6:25 pm at 6:25 pm #849645

Shabbos Gehennom is the first Shabbos after you lose eligibility for food shtemps and suddenly notice what kosher food really costs.
(Yes, I’m back – gotta prepare 30 days before the chag and that means Peerim is on the way!)February 6, 2012 10:49 pm at 10:49 pm #849649bptParticipant

tuna baigel- Why does it have to be a tense time, why can’t you just chill and be yourselves?? she aint gonna get the right impression that way….she’s gonna get a rude shock sometime sooner rather than later, After all were all human!December 25, 2018 12:42 pm at 12:42 pm #1651667✡onegoal™Participant
So Syag, how do you think you rate on the “in law scale” now?December 25, 2018 12:58 pm at 12:58 pm #1651682
🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣December 25, 2018 1:01 pm at 1:01 pm #1651671GadolhadorahParticipant
can you try to think of a kinder way to say that? It was otherwise a good point. (talk about judgemental) – 29December 25, 2018 1:02 pm at 1:02 pm #16516781Participant
It refers to the first Shabbos future husband spends with the family of future wife. Because he’ll have to be on his best behavior. If the food isn’t good and he doesn’t like father in law’s shul, he can’t escape.December 25, 2018 1:08 pm at 1:08 pm #1651695Little FroggieParticipant
Allowed to call her by her first name?
