      yes for delivery sinceI live in Hallandale Beach, Florida

      I am a senior and can't afford a lot-

      under $75

        Under $75 all in, or $75/person? You can easily do under $75/person. Under $75 total could be difficult depending on how many people you want to feed.

          thanx for responding- i am sending Israeli wine from Queen Anne Liquor

            Don't send wine. Send a desert platter and you can accomplish it for $75.

              Hold your horses... Amongst the activities the family should not engage during shiva, drinking wine is one of them. Thee are several items under $75 dollars you can find. Alternatively, find out who is organizing the food. Often the congregation office will have that information. You can participate with partial meal or cost. Please do not send wine. That being said, I think the avelim can drink the Shabbat Kiddush wine, but keep in mind that you do not keep the shiva during Shabbat, although there are parts of the Shabbat celebration that they don't participate.

                Waldwick is very close to Paramus/Fair Lawn, with multiple dairy options.

                    Jerusalem in Livingston delivers to Bergen County. I ordered for a shiva in Glen Rock from there in summer, 2011.
