Chometz Sale

  • Sell Your Chametz Online if you cannot sell in person.

  • 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.

    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 before Passover. If you are unable to submit your form to a Rabbi in person, you may submit your form online. 

    Jewish Law requires the sale to be completed before mid-morning of the morning before Passover. In order to ensure this, please submit this form before Friday, April 19, 2024, 3:00 PM.
