Mechiras Chametz- why?
About the Sale of Chametz

Since it is prohibited to possess chametz on Passover, any chametz left un-disposed must be sold to a non-Jew.

All such chametz, as well as all chametz utensils that were not thoroughly cleaned, should be stored away. The storage area should be locked or taped shut for the duration of the holiday.

Since there are many legal intricacies involved in this sale, a rabbi acts as our agent both to sell the chametz to the non-Jew on the morning before Passover and also to buy it back the evening after Passover ends.

The following form can be copied, modified, filled out, printed and submitted to your local rabbi by April 7, 2017 noon, local time. If you are unable to submit your form to a rabbi in person, you may submit your form online.

Jewish law require that your chametz be sold by the specified deadline for the location in which the owner will be on the day before Passover. Click here to look up this time for your city.
