Mishloach Manot

Mishloach Manot, the sending of food gifts to friends and family, is one of the four mitzvoth performed on Purim, which begins at sundown on Saturday, March 11th, 2017. The Fair Lawn Jewish Center/CBI Sisterhood creates and delivers a special package for you to purchase for fellow congregants. We also offer the feature of reciprocity, which means that when a congregant honors you, you have the option of returning the mitzvah.

This year’s theme will be
“Take me out to the Ballgame!”


We NOW offer you the ability to order Mishloach Manot through www.happypurim.com here’s how:

  • The log in code: (one will be given to each member)
  • Follow the instructions to place your order, indicate reciprocity, and customize a personal message.
  • Check off your recipients from the membership list. Each Recipient costs $7. If you choose reciprocity, you must order at least one package. The fee for reciprocity is $7 per reciprocal order, which will be added to your order.
  • You will receive a second charge on your credit card for reciprocity which will be calculated after the ordering deadline. If paying by check, you will receive a SECOND INVOICE for the amount due for reciprocals.
