Certificate of Authorization for the Sale of Chometz

  • Certificate of Authorization for the Sale of Chometz

    Note: Ideally, one should meet with a rabbi in person to arrange for the sale of one's chometz. For those that can't meet a rabbi in person, we offer the option of selling your chometz online with this form.

    Rabbi Kugel will be available to sell your chometz in person everyday after Shacharit, and in the evening from 7-8 PM on Thursday, 3/22 and Tuesday 3/27.  

    Sale of Chametz 
    As we may not own any chametz (leaven) on Passover, it is customary to sell all chametz before Pesach and buy it back as soon as the holiday ends. All chametz and chametz utensils are to be placed in closets or rooms that are locked/sealed shut throughout the holiday.

    Since the sale must be legally binding according to both Jewish and civil law, we empower a rabbi to act as our agent. The rabbi sells the chometz on Erev Pesach, Friday, March 30, 2018 before 11:56 AM and buys it back the evening after Passover (Saturday night, April 7, 2018).

    We cannot accept responsibility for forms received after Thursday, March 29, 2018 at 8 PM.

    IMPORTANT: After 8 PM on Thursday, March 29, 2018, or If you will be s pending Pesach outside of the eastern United States, please click here .
