Shiva is a time for mourners to express their sorrow and offer comfort upon the passing of a loved one. After the funeral, mourners “sit” Shiva at the house of the deceased for a period of seven days. During that time, visitors often provide food to the bereaved to free them from cooking.
When a Shiva order is placed at Zuchter Berk for a particular location, a coordinator is immediately assigned. The Zuchter Berk coordinator will work to ensure that a variety of foods are delivered to the Shiva location, that deliveries are spread throughout the Shiva period so fresh food arrives daily and that interruptions caused by deliveries are minimized.
