Thank you so much for writing this article. I’ve often wondered what I would do when my non-Jewish husband died (hopefully far in the future). I can’t imagine mourning him outside of what I know, which is the Jewish way of mourning.
You should ask the widow what she would like to do since you can’t really make assumptions about that. I think however that the Jewish tradition of supplying a grieving family with meals during the week of shiva is something that would be appreciated by any family in mourning.
