Food appropriate for a shiva

karykat | Apr 3, 2009 07:52 PM

A friend just let us know that her elderly father just died and we are invited to the shiva tomorrow night (Saturday). We are not jewish and are wondering about that tradition. From a bit of reading, I understand that it is traditional to made memorial donations and to bring food. Our friend does not keep kosher and is not highly traditional.

What is appropriate? Would it be good to make some cookies? Some really nice dried fruit and nuts? Any other thoughts?

Thanks much!
