Sell Your Chametz

  • Delegation of Power for the Sale of Chametz

  • Since it is prohibited to possess chametz on Pesach, any chametz left un-disposed must be sold to a non-Jew. (Any chametz remaining in the possession of a Jew during Pesach may not be used).   

    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 Rabbi Shemtov  by April 17 .

    Mail to: The Shul @ 6890 West Maple Rd, West Bloomfield 48322 or fax to 248-788-3230. 

    Otherwise, just submit and it will be given to Rabbi Shemtov directly through The Shul office.
