Sale of Chametz

  • Sale of Chametz Contract

  • Since it is prohibited to possess Chametz on Pesach, any Chametz left indisposed 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 which will occur on Wednesday, April 5, 2023 at 11:16 a.m. (Chametz can be consumed on April 5th till 10:12 a.m. then Chametz needs to be burnt by 11:16 a.m.). 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 should be filled out and submitted to Rabbi Levi Duchman by March 31st, 2023. Sorry, we will not be able to process any forms submitted past that date. I, the undersigned, fully empower and permit Rabbi Levi Duchman to act in my place and stead, and on my behalf to sell all Chametz possessed by me, knowingly or unknowingly as defined by the Torah and Rabbinic Law (e.g. Chametz, possible Chametz, and all kinds of Chametz mixtures. Also, Chametz that tends to harden and adhere to inside surfaces of pans, pots, or cooking utensils, the utensils themselves, and all kinds of live animals and pets that have been eating Chametz and mixtures thereof.) Rabbi Levi Duchman is also empowered to lease all places wherein the Chametz owned by me may be found, particularly at the address/es listed below, and elsewhere. Rabbi Levi Duchman has full right to appoint any agent or substitute in his stead and said substitute shall have full right to sell and lease as provided herein. Rabbi Levi Duchman also has the full power and right to act as he deems fit and proper in accordance with all the details of the Bill of Sale used in the transaction to sell all my Chametz, Chametz mixtures, etc., as provided herein. This power is in conformity with all Torah, Rabbinic and Civil laws.
