Sale of Hametz and Ma'ot Hittim – Passover 5779/2019
This year Passover begins on Friday evening, April 19th. One of the Passover rituals is to remove hametz (leaven) from our homes in accordance with the verse, “No leaven shall be found in your houses for seven days” (Exodus 12:19). Products considered hametz include: leavened bread, spaghetti, crackers, cereal, wheat, barley, oats, spelt, rye, and all liquids containing ingredients or flavors made from grain alcohol. Ideally, these products should be discarded prior to the start of Passover. However, Judaism also recognizes that one should not incur undue financial loss in observance of the mitzvot. Therefore, if, after thoroughly cleaning for Passover you still have hametz products to store during the holiday, you may perform the ritual of “selling your hametz.”

To sell your hametz through Rabbi Polisson, fill out the form below.

Ma'ot Hittim – a tzedekah mitzvah
Before Passover, it is customary to give Ma'ot Hittim, charity for the Passover needs of the poor. For your convenience, you can send in donations at the time that you authorize Rabbi Polisson to sell your Hametz. We recommend making a donation in increments of $18. You can donate to Congregation Or Atid in general, or to the Rabbi’s Discretionary Fund. The latter will be used to make donations to JFS MetroWest and JF&CS Boston in Waltham. Checks should be made payable to Congregation Or Atid with relevant designation information in the memo line. For your convenience, we also accept online donations through Paypal on our website:
