Shiva Gift Baskets

SHIVA Gift BASKETS (Jewish Condolence)

** ALSO SEE SHIVA FOOD PLATTERS**

Shiva is the mourning period, traditionally observed by the parent, spouse, sibling or child of the deceased. During Shiva ("sitting Shiva"), which is traditionally a seven day period that begins immediately after the funeral, the family stays home to focus on their grief, remember their loved one and receive visitors. Although traditionally a seven-day period, many families sit Shiva for a shorter period; perhaps 1, 2 or 3 days. The Shiva period is often announced at the funeral. 

Jewish custom discourages sending flowers or gifts other than food  when people are sitting Shiva.  Shiva begins with seudat havra'ah, "the meal of consolation," prepared by family and neighbors. For those who are unable to make a personal visit, sending a food gifts basket such as a Shiva Food Gifts or Sympathy Gift Baskets, with a thoughtful card is an appropriate and helpful gesture. 
 
All our Shiva gift baskets are designed so that foods can be opened & served with no fuss.
They can be made either all Kosher, partly or not at all, Please advise us. 

Be sure to find out if the family sitting Shiva keeps kosher

, so you can send an appropriate food gift basket.
