HOW THE CORONAVIRUS IS AFFECTING FUNERALS & SHIVA

COVID-19 Coronavirus - Social Distancing and Jewish Mourning, shiva.

 


 

HOW TO EXPRESS CONDOLENCES DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC

There are a number of unprecedented measures taking place as a result of the COVID-19 coronavirus that will restrict and limit certain gatherings which includes funerals, burials and shivas...

 


 

GRIEF & MOURNING DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC

The breadth and length of time the restrictions will remain are still unknown, but the practices of social distancing are in effect across the United States causing changes to the funeral, burial, and shiva gatherings. This additional consideration or change in practices introduces a new type of grief.

 


 

A NEW GRIEF: STAYING CONNECTED TO HELP

In addition to the ordinary grief mourners experience at a time of loss, the newly imposed coronavirus requirements to modify or cancel public funerals, burials, and shivas introduces an additional trauma and component to the grieving process.

 


 

VIEWNERAL™ COLLABORATIVE AND INTERACTIVE VIRTUAL FUNERALS

Viewnerals™ bring traditional funerals, burials, memorials, shiva and gatherings into your homes. It provides a collaborative and interactive experience that allows your family, friends, colleagues and the community to be present, stay connected and provide support during your time of need.

 


 

POST COVID-19 PLANNING A JEWISH FUNERAL: “NEW NORMAL"

The “New Normal” for Jewish funerals is yet to be determined and will reveal itself for months if not years after the Covid-19 or Coronavirus crisis subsides.

 


 

POST COVID-19 FUNERALS, GATHERINGS & PTSD

As the social distancing and gathering rules become less stringent, it is important to keep in mind that people will have varying levels of comfort and some may choose to continue to avoid gatherings altogether.

 


 

FOOD SAFETY AT SHIVAS AND MEMORIALS IN A CORONAVIRUS WORLD

Handling, storing and serving food safely should always be a priority, however in a Covid-19 world when people are gathering for events such as shiva’s and memorials and food is served buffet style, it is prudent to take additional precautions.
