Virtual performance and Q&A following

Welcome to the Shiva House – an interactive virtual performance. Join together as a community through tears, laughter, and good memories, as we explore what it means to grieve collectively.

Shiva (/shiv-UH/) is the seven-day Jewish mourning period following the burial of a loved one; this traditionally involves joining the bereaved in their home for recollection and comfort. This hybrid experience utilizes digital performance, a guided walking meditation, and a companion booklet to help you follow along. Welcome, as we memorialize and celebrate the larger-than-life Sam Bloom, on this, the seventh and final day of Shiva.
