Since it is prohibited to possess chametz on Passover, 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 me or your local rabbi by midnight of April 9 2017, local time. If you are unable to submit your form to a rabbi in person, you may submit your form online.

The tradition is to give a little charity as you sell your chometz click here to do so now.

 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.
