Before you decide of the means of shipping please take a moment to read about the various shipping possibilities. In Israel we ship by registered mail. Outside Israel merchandise will be sent to you by registered airmail or EMS international Express Mail courier service. As shipping with registered airmails takes more time and is handled by more hands than EMS we recommend you use the courier service whenever you order breakable or delicate items. After entering the items of your choice into the shopping cart and choosing the kind of shipping you decided on, you will get the price of the items and the shipping. Please be advised that REGISTERED AIR MAIL WEIGHT IS LIMITED TO 4 POUNDS. When you request shipping a higher weight you will get a RED message to change the means of transport. Our calculation of the shipping is limited to 40 pounds that covers most of the orders. For bulk shipping like corporate gifts, synagogue gift stores, or Simcha favors we will get you the shipping info before billing you. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT you make sure to include your shipping address! Delivery time by EMS courier services is usually 4-5 working days. It may take longer if your work is held up at US Customs. Tracking information can take up to 48 hours to be updated after the order is shipped. PLEASE NOTE: When your package has been shipped with EMS it will be delivered by US Mail special delivery. US Mail will make 2 delivery attempts. If your package cannot be delivered (i.e. no one available to take delivery), US Mail will leave a note informing you that the package is at the local post office where it will be kept for 1 WEEK. If not collected during this time, it will be returned to Israel.
In Israel we use the metric system. However, as most of our customers abroad use inches to measure, we translated the sizes into inches. Please note that the conversion is not exact, and sometimes there may be a slight difference.
Please remember that most of the items on this website are hand made. As such, the item that you receive may vary slightly from pictured product. We have made every effort to display the items as color accurate as possible. Please be aware that as colors depend on your monitor sometimes color may look different in reality.
When you request a special feature like additional personalizing or a larger size, and paying by credit card the difference in price will be charged by us with the original amount. All you have to do is mention your wish when ordering the item. However paying by PAYPAL and ordering a special order item like personalizing a product or requesting an additional feature, a larger size, or a further request you can pay for the price of the addition here. We will adjust the price for you in the exact amount so that you know beforehand exactly how much you are going to pay. To make it easy we will send you the link to it by Email.
We know that the greatest gift begins from a beautiful ribbon you pull to open your present. Tearing open the wrapping of the gifts is music to the ears. That why we decided to wrap the gifts for you free of charge. When ordering please let us know if this is a gift that you'd like us to wrap for you. We w ill also include a greeting card free of charge. Please remember to write the text for your card in the Message or Comments field before you check out.
