Sell Chametz

Since it is prohibited to possess chametz on Pesach, any chametz left un-disposed must be sold to a non-Jew. And then after Passover, your Cameits will be boiught back. [Remember: any chametz that is "owned" by a Jew during Pesach may not be eaten or used, even after Pesach.]

Therefore, all chametz that will not be eaten or disposed of before Pesach and all chametz utensils that will not be thoroughly cleaned by then, should be stored away. The storage area should be taped shut to be leased to the non-Jew at the time of the chametz sale.

Since there are many legal intricacies in this sale, only a competent rabbi should be entrusted with its execution. The rabbi acts as our agent both to sell the chametz to the non-Jew on the morning before Pesach starts and also to buy it back the evening after Pesach ends.

The form below should be printed out and mailed or brought to the Chabad Center by April 4.
