Selling of Chometz

Since it’s prohibited to possess chometz on Pesach, we need to sell to a non-Jew all chometz that will not be eaten or burned before Pesach and all chometz utensils which will not be thoroughly cleaned by then.  These are stored away in closets or rooms while preparing for Pesach.  Now we lock or tape shut the closets or rooms, and they are leased to the non-Jew at the time of sale.

Since there are many legal intricacies in this sale, only a competent Rabbi should be entrusted with its execution.  The Rabbi acts as our agent both to sell the chometz to the non-Jew on the morning before Pesach starts and also to buy it back the evening after Pesach.

Fill out the form below and submit online, mail or email it to:

Rabbi Y. Laufer, Chabad of West Bay, 3871 Post. Rd., Warwick, RI 02886

Return this form early, as responsibility cannot be accepted for forms received two days before Pesach or later.



*I (We)* hereby authorize Rabbi Y. Laufer to dispose of all chometz that may be in my (our) possession wherever it may be-at home, at my (our) place of business, or elsewhere-in accordance with the requirement of Jewish law as incorporated in the special contract for the sale of chometz. *(Today's date)
