Westport, CT (PRWEB) April 23, 2007
Mourners in every faith appreciate the thoughts, prayers and condolences of family, friends and colleagues. A desire to pay respects and offer condolences in an appropriate way has lead many people to use the Internet for this information. The Challah Connection, an online purveyor of kosher sympathy gift baskets, offers several new gift baskets that help friends, family and colleagues express their condolences to Jewish friends and family.
"When my friend's grandmother passed away, I wanted to send a sympathy basket or something to his family to let them know that I was thinking of them at their time of loss," Robert Melillo, 35, Brooklyn, NY explains. "Since his family is Jewish, I wanted to make sure I didn't send something inappropriate or send it at an inappropriate time."
Men and women around the nation are faced with this dilemma nearly daily. The desire to learn more about the Jewish customs pertaining to mourning, the burying of the deceased and the Shiva period has lead many to turn to the Internet for information.
"It is heart-warming to see so many of our clients turning to us for guidance when buying sympathy baskets," Jane Moritz, owner, Challah Connection, explains. "We have added a good deal of information on our website about the Jewish mourning tradition and continue to add more. We take the time to help clients choose the right sentiment in a gift card, or answer any questions they have about the Jewish traditions for burial and Shiva, as well as other Jewish customs."
In fact, The Challah Connection has obtained a reputation for helping people send appropriate sympathy gift baskets and kosher food gifts to families during the Shiva period (the seven day mourning period in the Jewish faith). The website's ability to help people learn more about the Jewish traditions of mourning, coupled with the ability to order appropriate items to pay respects has helped the company build a loyal following.
"It's nice to see a company that isn't just out to make a quick buck. I think it's great when a company is willing to contact you and alter or cancel an order if the effect of the order is inappropriate for its intended purpose, that's just great," Melillo explains. "I buy great sympathy baskets from the site regardless of religion, their baskets are always just the right sentiment."
Everyone is faced with loss in their family and in the families of friends, loved ones and colleagues. The ability to go online to find information on how to properly respect the memory of the deceased and his or her family has put many minds at ease during a difficult time.
