Passover with Chabad


sell your chametz

The requirement of burning Chametz is limited to foods under Jewish ownership and possession. Chametz that has been transferred via sale to a non-Jew need not be destroyed. Such transfer of Chametz, by a legal and binding sale, with properly executed contract, gives the non-Jew ownership to all Chametz. The legal intricacies covering this transfer of property are many and only a competent Rabbi should be entrusted with its execution.

To ensure that you own no Chametz during Passover, please fill out this "Sale of Chametz Form" and make sure it arrives at our office no later than April 20, 2016. We cannot accept responsibility for forms received after this date.
