In the Jewish tradition, immediately upon the burial of a loved one, some family members may choose to observe a traditional period of grief and mourning referred to as "sitting shiva." During the shiva, family members sit on a low stool and are not allowed to perform tasks such as preparing or cooking food. It is up to the community of friends and family to provide food for the duration of shiva.
Many communities will have set up a rotation of people bringing meals to the mourners during and immediately after the shiva. If you'd like to help by bringing a meal, see if you can find out if someone is coordinating such efforts, and be in touch with them. You can also bring some prepared food with you when you make the shiva call. If you're not into cooking, you can visit a Kosher Deli Delray Beach to buy food from them.
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 Kosher Deli Delray Beach, it is easier to send food items to the Shiva house.
The shiva call gives you an opportunity to express your sorrow for the dead. If you have no idea as to what to bring to the shiva, coordinate with Shiva Deliva now to see what food items you can bring. They have a wide network of Kosher Deli Delray Beach that you can buy from. Call us now!
