Sale of Chametz

Sale of Chametz

Sell Your Chametz Online

Since it is prohibited to possess chametz on Pesach, any chametz left un-disposed 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 for any purpose.]

Therefore, all chametz that will not be eaten or burned before as well as all utensils used with chametz and not kosherized for Pesach 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.

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 can be copied, modified, filled out, printed and submitted to your local Rabbi by Friday, April 7, 2017. If you are unable to submit your form to a Rabbi in person, you may submit your form online until 10:00pm, Saturday Night, April 8th, 2017. After that time, please contact Rabbi Schwartz directly at 954-376-9973.
