sale of chametz
Since it is prohibited to possess Chometz on Pesach, any Chometz left indisposed must be sold to a non-Jew. [Any Chometz remaining in the possession of a Jew during Pesach may not be used, eaten, bought or sold even after Pesach.] Therefore, all Chometz that will not be eaten or burned before Pesach and all Chometz 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 Chometz sale which will occur on Wednesday, April 8, 2020, at 11:45 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 Chometz 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 Mendel Hertz by April 3, 2020. Sorry, we will not be able to process any forms submitted past that date.
