Chicago Jewish Funerals partners with shiva.com™ to provide comprehensive information on the traditions of shiva and Jewish mourning for bereaved family members, friends and comforters. Shiva is unique to the Jewish faith and has many items that a mourning family or representative (i.e., the shiva coordinator) decides in a short period of time. Many of the planning decisions relate to organizing and preparing the home according to the family's level of observance.
