Shiva* Calls

Do you visit or phone?  Both are "shiva calls."

*Shiva is Jewish mourning, generally a full week of seven days.  Sheva means seven in Hebrew.  Mourning is in stages, seven days, thirty days and a year for parents.

I just called my cousins who are sitting shiva for my aunt, their mother.

HaMakom Y'Nacham
May G-d comfort them...
