The term shiva, which means seven, refers to the number of days after the funeral where the family will mourn. During this mourning period, there are eight relationships that sit during the shiva: a father or mother, husband or wife, sister or brother, and son or daughter. Sitting is done during the Shiva, on a low chair, much closer to the ground than usual, in order to signify the status of a mourner.
During the entire period of the shiva, the family members are prohibited from doing menial household tasks such as cooking. This leaves the relatives, friends, and colleagues to provide the mourners with nourishment. Bringing food baskets with items from Jewish Deli Delray Beach is how people express their condolences.
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 Deli Delray Beach, it is easier to send food items to the Shiva house.
When visiting a Shiva house, make sure you have a shiva basket with you to fully express your condolences to the family. It is also a matter of doing your part for the community because you are bringing something that will benefit the other people present during the shiva. If you want to know what to bring, Shiva Deliva Registry shows you the nearest of Jewish Deli Delray Beach where you can buy from for your basket.
