Authorization to Sell Chametz 5784

Shomrei Torah WCC

AUTHORIZATION TO SELL CHAMETZ 5784/2024


If possible, all chametz – food not acceptable during Pesach (Passover), or materials containing such unacceptable food – should be destroyed or given away before the holiday begins. Should this be impossible, the chametz may be stored in such a way that we are sure not to use it during the holiday and its actual ownership is transferred to a non-Jew until the holiday concludes.

Please complete the form below and return it by 10 AM on Monday, April 22, 2024, Erev Pesach 5784.
