Sell Your Chames


It is forbidden for any Jew to possess any leaven bread or Chametz during the eight days of Passover, any Chametz left that was not disposed of 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 following form must be submitted to us by 6:00 PM the night before Pessach. If you are unable to submit your form to a Rabbi in person, you may submit your form to us online.

Jewish law requires that your Chametz is sold by the specified deadline for the location in which the owner will be on the day before Passover.
