Mishloach Manot 2020/5780

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 Monday, March 9th, 2020. 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.


Here’s how to order Mishloach Manot through www.happypurim.com:

  1. Log on to www.happypurim.com using your log-in code below.
  2. This week, you should expect to receive log-in codes via email and regular mail. If you do not receive your login code, please call.
  3. Follow the instructions to place your order, indicate reciprocity, and customize a personal message.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Please indicate if you will be away, unable to receive your package OR do not want to receive a package.
  7. For your added convenience, you may pay by MASTERCARD OR VISA on the website only. If paying by check, please make checks payable to Sisterhood FLJC/CBI and send to, 10-10 Norma Ave, Fair Lawn, NJ 07410 with paper order form and congregant list. Paper order forms are available at the FLJC/CBI.
  8. The deadline for all orders will be February 23, 2020. After this date, you will NOT be able to gain access to the website.
