Making a shiva call is one of the most important acts of condolence you can do for someone of the Jewish faith who has recently lost a loved one. You should know that when you go to a shiva house, you are expected to bring food with you because the bereaved are not allowed to perform tasks such as cooking. Respect this custom by bringing in food for shiva that you can buy from Jewish Deli Potomac.
Comforters are obligated to tend to the needs of the mourners especially when it comes to their food. This is the reason why shivas are known to 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 Potomac should give you an idea of what to buy.
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 Potomac, it is easier to send food items to the Shiva house.
During the entire period of the shiva, the family members are prohibited from doing menial household tasks such as cooking. Make sure you do your part as a member of the community by bringing in food for everyone. Place an order at a Jewish Deli Potomac 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.
We are sorry for your loss and hope to help you and your family through your mourning period.
