For those of the Jewish faith, mourning is a very personal process. Immediate family members of the dead must sit shiva – a seven-day period where they sit on low stools and quietly mourn. They are not allowed to do chores such as preparing and cooking food. This means that the visitors are tasked to bring food which they can buy at a Jewish Bakery Delray Beach.
During the shiva, family members traditionally gather in one home and receive visitors. It is considered a great mitzvah, or commandment, of loving kindness and compassion to pay a home visit to the mourners. Guests are expected to bring items of nourishment for fellow visitors and the family members. They can bring shiva baskets that are readily available at Jewish Bakery Delray Beach.
Nobody wants to be in a situation where they are mourning a loved one, but it does happen throughout our lives. During the Shiva, people may choose to bring or send food or snacks to the Shiva house to help console the mourners, as well as provide food to others visiting. Having a central location where family and friends can see what food needs/desires have been designated for specific periods of time during the Shiva can be a great comfort for the mourners.
The Shiva Deliva Registry allows the mourner (or a representative from the family) set up a calendar of Shiva calls and insert what types of meals and for how many people items are requested for and then how much of these have been fulfilled. Registrants can select preferred local suppliers for which they would like to receive food from. Secondly, Shiva Deliva understands that family and friends are not always close by. By having a directory of Jewish Bakery Delray Beach, it is easier to send food items to the Shiva house.
If you are attending a shiva for the first time and you don't know what to bring, sweet delicacies and desserts are always a safe choice. A visit to a nearby Jewish Bakery Delray Beach will give you an idea of what to bring to the shiva. Feel free to contact Shiva Deliva for more information regarding food options for Shiva.
