-- It is considered a great mitzvah (literally "commandment"
but usually interpreted as "good deed") of kindness and compassion to pay a home visit (make or pay a shiva call) to the mourners, a practice known as Nichum Aveilim. And it is considered a mitzvah for visitors to bring prepared food for the mourners. The mourner is not expected or obligated to serve food to the visitors, who may eat only if offered food by the mourner.
The challenge is, what to bring or send. Even if you are of the Jewish faith, you may be at a loss when deciding what is proper to send to a shiva house. That is why Tasteful Treats and Treasures offers specially designed sympathy baskets for shiva.
Each basket has been specifically designed to tastefully convey the depth of your heartfelt condolences with certified kosher gourmet treats and a generous selection of Parve items.
An ideal way to express your sentiments to a family or an individual, this gift overflows with an exquisite assortment of delicacies, condiments and irresistible cookies, complemented by fresh smoked salmon, and the finest in teas and coffee.
