Sale of Chametz
According to Jewish law, one must not have any chametz in his or her possession during Pesach. This is accomplished in a number of ways: we use up as much chametz as possible before the festival, we thoroughly clean our home, we give any unopened packages to the needy, we check our homes for chametz and symbolically burn chametz we find, we recite a formula declaring any chametz that has not been found to be nullified “as the dust of the earth”. Finally we sell any chametz we wish to keep over the festival to a non-Jew so that it will not be in our possession.
Anyone who wishes to sell their chametz and to have the synagogue assist them in doing so should fill out the form below, appointing Rabbi Wittenberg to act on their behalf in the sale of the chametz.
Please note: completed forms must be returned to the synagogue office by the end of Monday 6th April 2020 to guarantee that they will be processed before Pesach.
