Sell Your Chametz 

Breads Chometz.jpg Since it is prohibited to possess chametz on Pesach, any chametz left undisposed must be sold to a non-Jew. 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. Any chametz remaining in the possession of a Jew during Pesach may not be used, eaten, bought or sold even after 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 can be copied, modified, filled out, printed and submitted to your local Rabbi. If you are unable to submit your form to a Rabbi in person, you may submit your form o nline.  Note: We will not be able to process chametz sales submitted later than Friday morning, April 3,  2020, 9:00 AM Central Time.
