What is Shiva?
In Judaism, the first period of structured mourning is shiva. The primary purpose of the shiva tradition, or “sitting shiva,” is to create an environment of comfort and community for mourners; it helps guide friends and family members through the loss of a loved one. Throughout the shiva period, mourners come together in one family’s home to offer their condolences and support. For more information, please http://www.shiva.com/learning-center/understanding/
