According to www.shivalistings.com:
Although not everyone follows all of the rituals, the list below includes some of the more common customs. They may vary depending on the denomination of Judaism (reform, reconstructionist, conservative or orthodox) or their level of observance.
* Shiva comes from the Hebrew word for seven, which is the traditional number of days of the mourning period. There is much variability in how long people open their house during the period following the funeral commonly referred to as sitting shiva. Frequently the period of sitting shiva is shorter than seven days. Also frequently it occurs at more than one house.
* The mirrors in the house may be covered. One traditional explanation for this is that so the mourners will not have to look upon their grief.
* It is customary to bring food to the home where someone is sitting Shiva. The mourners dietary restrictions (kosher, etc.) should be respected. It is customary not to take food out of a home during Shiva (though this may vary according to the family's wishes).
* Usually, there is a ceremony each evening when the kaddish (memorial prayer) is recited. A minyan (a minimum of 10 adults people referred to as a minyan who have been bar/bat mitzvahed generally at age 13) are required to pray. In orthodox and sometimes conservative Judaism, only men can count towards the minyan.
* The mourners may wear a piece of torn cloth, or rip their own clothes as a sign of mourning.
* Men who are mourning may decide not to shave.
* The mourners may sit on boxes instead of chairs or couches, visitors should not sit on these boxes, but on regular furniture (chairs or sofas).
