Sell Your Chometz

  • Sale of Chometz

  • Since it is prohibited to possess chametz on Pesach, any chametz left undisposed must be sold to a non-Jew. [Any chametz remaining in the possession of a Jew during Pesach may not be used, eaten, bought or sold even after Pesach.]

    Therefore, all chametz that will not be eaten or burned before Pesach and all chametz utensils that will not be thoroughly cleaned by then should be stored away.

    The storage area should be locked or taped shut to be leased to the non-Jew at the time of the chametz sale and should remain shut for the duration of Pesach.

    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 following form may be submitted online by 4PM on Thursday, 18 April 2019 . It is preferable for a hard copy to be used so if you'd like you could print the form, fill it in and send it in before Thursday.
