Sell Chametz

  • Must be submitted by Monday, April 3, 2023.
    Since it is prohibited to possess chametz on Pesach, any chametz left undisposed must be sold to a non-Jew.
    Since there are many legal intricacies in this sale, only a competent rabbi should be entrusted with its execution.  The Rabbi acts as your 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, filled out, printed and submitted to Rabbi Drizin by early morning, April 4, 2023, local time. If you are unable to submit your form to the Rabbi in person, you may submit your form online.
    Jewish law requires that your chametz be sold by the specified deadline for the location in which the owner will be on the day before Passover. If you will be in a location other than New Jersey, please contact us for detailed instructions.
