Shiva is one of the most recognizable terms in Judaism, and a practice that almost every Jew has experienced one way or another. Nonetheless, few are prepared for Shiva before they experience it. This guide is designed to help the mourner navigate this difficult time in life, and to guide the consoler through the Mitzvah of comforting a grieving friend or relative.

This book features a comprehensive, easy-to-follow chart of the laws and customs of Shiva
