Sale of Hametz

It is preferable that all hametz (food which one may not eat or possess during the holiday) be given away or destroyed before the holiday begins. Unopened packages of food may be donated to a food pantry. However, if disposing of hametz would result in undue financial hardship, or is for some other reason impossible, it is permissible to transfer ownership of it to a non-Jew for the duration of the holiday. The hametz should then be clearly identified and stored in such a way that it will not accidentally be eaten during Pesah.

If you would like us to sell hametz on your behalf, please complete the form below.  Make sure to list all addresses (whether you own or rent) which may contain food, and make sure to include the apartment number if there is one.  To be included in the sale, your form must be received by Tuesday April 4. After you submit the form, you will receive a confirmation email.  If you do not receive confirmation, your request has not gone through; please email us at cshrabbi@gmail.com to ensure that you are included in the sale.
