At the heart of Judaism is community and tradition, and at no time do these come together more poignantly than after the death of someone in the community. During this time, known as shiva, or sitting shiva, the community comes together to give support to those who have lost a loved one. Shiva lasts a week and directly follows the seudat havra‘ah, the meal that is eaten privately by the family upon return from the cemetery. Showing sympathy for people when they are going through this emotional time is, of course, the right thing to do. Traditionally the gift that one gives to the family who is sitting shiva is a shiva basket. This is the perfect way to honor their loss, since they are not allowed to participate in daily activities, including cooking. It is the perfect gift that nourishes both body and spirit. And again, all our products are certified Kosher and all natural, so you should rest assured you are giving the highest quality cookies and chocolates.
