Sell Your Chametz

Since it is prohibited to possess chametz on Passover, any chametz left undisposed must be sold to a non-Jew. Any chametz remaining in the possession of a Jew during Passover may not be used or eaten after the festival.

Therefore, all chametz that will not be eaten or burned before Passover and all chametz 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 chametz sale.

The rabbi acts as our agent both to sell the chametz to the non-Jew on the morning before Passover starts and also to buy it back the evening after Passover ends.
