Sell Chametz

Sell Chametz

  • Since it is prohibited to possess chametz (any leavened grain product) 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 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.

    I fully empower and permit Rabbi Yossi Posner to act on my behalf to sell all Chametz/mixtures of Chametz owned by me, as defined by the Torah and Rabbinic Law, particularly at the address/es listed below, and elsewhere. This power is in conformity with all Torah, Rabbinic and Civil laws.
