For the Jewish faith, expressing your condolences means visiting the shiva house. During the shiva week, mourners are expected to remain at home, sitting on low stools as they mourn the loss of a loved one. As they sit the shiva, they are not allowed to perform tasks such as cooking. What happens is that those who will be attending the mourning are expected to bring shiva food, such as Shiva Baskets Boca Raton, that will nourish the mourners.
During a shiva, it is very common that those who are invited will bring or send traditional food items to the house of the mourners. The customs of bringing and sending food items to a shiva home have evolved over time into a gesture and appropriate offering of support to a family of the Jewish faith in mourning. In fact, sending a sympathy gift or Shiva Baskets Boca Raton, which typically includes baked goods, fruit, dried fruit and nuts or chocolate, is considered appropriate.
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 shiva restaurants, delis and groceries, it is easier to send food items such as Shiva Baskets Boca Raton to the Shiva house.
