Shiva Services

What is Shiva?

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.

Tradition allows a great time of comfort and sympathy to the mourners.

At Gourmet Girls, we bring over 45 years of experience in helping families manage Shiva in their time of need and comfort. Let our experience and compassion provide you the assistance you need at this difficult time. We are dedicated to providing personal and compassionate assistance when planning and coordinating a Shiva. Our specialist can guide you through a step by step process in overseeing the ordering and delivering of food. In addition, we will provide the family with a list of names of all those who contributed as well as any personal messages and addresses for acknowledgment.

Upon calling GG, our Shiva specialist will assist in guiding you through the process. Whether assistance is needed in providing suggestions to the family or individuals providing food, we offer necessary guidance. Our specialist will set up a Shiva plan, collect contributions towards Shiva credit, and coordinate with family and/or the family representative to ensure fresh food delivered daily. Should you require staffing assistance in food set up and service, we can happily provide servers as well. Our Shiva coordinator can assist with most arrangements to make a difficult time a little easier.

Gourmet Girls also offers meal and sympathy baskets to gatherings of any faith. We will gladly assist in coordinating meals, gift baskets, and expressions of condolence to those in need.

Starting in August 2020, we are pleased to announce we will make available to those in mourning a private, comfortable place to meet family and friends for any sympathy gathering. Our "Gathering Spot" has been created with you in mind. Offering a private space to meet and accept comfort from others should you choose to do so outside your home. We cater to your needs during this time of sympathy. Please contact our Coordinator to arrange room availability and meal planning.
