Lighting candles while sitting shiva jewish tradition

What is a Shiva?

The Jewish tradition of sitting shiva is a period of time for relatives to mourn after a passing. The shiva begins after the burial of the person who has passed, and lasts for seven days. Although shiva’s are a time of mourning, those sitting shiva often welcome friends and family to join them and offer their condolences.

Kosher Shiva Meals & Catering

Since sitting shiva is a Jewish tradition, it is understanding that many people who sit shiva adhere to a Kosher diet. It’s tradition for family and guests to bring food to a shiva, but it’s important to know the dietary restrictions and preferences of those sitting shiva to make sure the right food is chosen. For example, if the family sitting shiva keeps Kosher, you should bring Kosher meals to the shiva. Kosher shiva meals and catering options range from salads, to baked goods, to proteins like chicken, fish, and beef.

People who need Kosher food for a shiva tend to order from a caterer. A Kosher caterer can provide fresh, delicious options and deliver directly to the family’s home if needed. Meals from a Kosher caterer will be made in a Kosher kitchen and will be certified COR Kosher.
