Sell Your Chametz

  • 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.

    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.

    If you prefer not to submit online you can copy the text below and email to or mail to Chabad of the Shoreline, 800 Village Walk #327, Guilford CT 06437 to be received before April 16, 2019.
