Sale of the Chametz

Sale of the Chametz

Sell Your Chametz Online

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.

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 your local Rabbi by April 7th 2017. If you are unable to submit your form to a Rabbi in person, you may submit your form online. You must submit a separate form for each property you own that has chametz you wish to sell.
