For those not in the know, a shiva is the Jewish custom of the week-long period of mourning immediately following a death, during which the mourners receive guests at home. It's customary to bring food to the mourners' house. This is the community's way of helping the mourning family as they are not allowed to perform daily chores like cooking. When visiting a shiva house, it is recommended that you bring with you food bought from a Jewish Deli Livingston.
A shiva schedule is typically announced at the funeral or obituary. Although shiva is 7 days, many mourners shorten the period. During this entire period, guests and visitors come in bearing food items from Jewish Deli Livingston. Bring food that can easily be served and shared. Avoid food that requires work on the part of the mourners.
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 Livingston, it is easier to send food items to the Shiva house.
Shivas can also be a gathering of friends and family as they are surrounded by lots of food. If you don't know what to bring, a simple visit to a Jewish Deli Livingston should give you an idea of what to buy. Place an order at a deli near you so they can arrange a platter or basket that you can bring to the shiva. Feel free to contact Shiva Deliva now for more information.
