Shiva: How to Help Your Friend in Mourning

Shiva is a word that means seven in Hebrew. Shiva is a word people use to explain the week-long mourning period in Judaism.

When friends and loved ones lose someone, it can be hard to know how to support them. This video on the Jewish practice of Shiva (שבעה “seven”) helps explain about the specific mourning practices in Judaism, and what your friend needs from you.



This project was made possible with generous support from The Koret Foundation, as part of its Initiative on Jewish Peoplehood.
