Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Shiva meal?

Shiva, meaning “seven” is the seven-day period of mourning after a Jewish funeral. Shiva is a time for friends and family to visit, celebrate life, and offer support to the mourning family. Although Shiva is officially 7 days long, this period is often shortened by the mourning family. During these few days, meals (Shiva meals) are traditionally prepared by friends to show condolences.

What type of food is typically included in a Shiva meal?

A wide variety of foods can be brought to Shiva. Ideally, it should be food that can be easily shared and prepared by the mourners. It is very common for these meals to include baked goods, round foods, challah, soups, chicken, fish, beef, or other nutritious kosher dishes.

How does your Shiva meal delivery service work?

It’s very common for a food schedule to be prepared by a loved one to help coordinate the Shiva. Before giving Ely’s Fine Foods a call, it’s best to check with them before organizing your meal.
