Sell Your Chametz

  • Sell Your Chametz

  • Certificate of Authorization for the Sale of Chometz

    Note : this certificate is only for those spending Pesach in New York City or places west of New York City. For those spending Pesach in Europe or Israel and the like, please sell your chometz in the location where you will be for Pesach or click here.   

    In addition: Ideally, one should meet with a rabbi in person to arrange for the sale of one's chometz. For those that can't meet a rabbi in person, we offer the option of selling your chometz online with this form.

    Sale of Chametz 

    As we may not own any chametz (leaven) on Passover, we are required to sell all chametz before Pesach to a non-Jew. It is bought back after the holiday ends. All chametz and chametz utensils are to be placed in closets or rooms that are locked/sealed shut throughout the holiday.

    To make sure the sale is legally binding according to both Jewish and civil law, we empower a rabbi to act as our agent. This year, the rabbi sells the chometz on Monday, April 22, 2024 before 11:45 AM and buys it back the evening after Passover (Tuesday night, April 30, 2024).

    We cannot accept responsibility for forms received after Sunday, April 21, 2024 at 8 PM.

    IMPORTANT: After 8 PM on Sunday, April 21, 2024, or if you will be spending Pesach east of the eastern United States, please click here.

  • I hereby authorize Rabbi Yisrael Kugel to dispose of all chometz that may be in my possession wherever it may be - at home, in my place of business, or elsewhere - in accordance with the requirements of Jewish Law as incorporated in the special contract for the sale of chometz.
