Koliva / Memorial Trays

In the Greek Orthodox religion, koliva is a dish that is full of ritual significance. It symbolizing the circle of death and rebirth.
Koliva, consisting of boiled wheat, raisins and spices, is traditionally prepared for and blessed during funerals, various memorial services, and as well as on special occasions, such as the Saturday of Souls.

The symbolic use of Koliva in our Church services, is that the wheat berries represent the promise of everlasting life, the raisins the sweetness of life, and the spices are symbols of plenty. So man may be regarded as a seed, he is given to the earth through death, and will rise again.
