Sale of Chometz Form
MECHIRAT CHOMETZ – SALE OF LEAVEN
POWER OF ATTORNEY
It is most important that all chometz is disposed of or sold before Passover.
Although the non-Jew usually sells it back after Passover, this is an entirely valid and legal sale, both in Jewish and English Law.
The chometz to be sold should be securely locked away in a room or cupboard, which will not be used over Pesach.
It is customary to empower the local rabbi to sell one’s chometz and to sign the Rabbi’s contract.
Members should contact the office if they need a form emailed or posted to them.
