Sell Your Hametz before Passover (deadline March 15)

Click *here* for the form to sell your Hametz before Passover this year – or just complete the form on this page.

Many of us know that according to Jewish law and practice, Jews may not eat nor possess nor benefit from any hametz (fermented or leavened grain-products) during the entire holiday of Passover (pesach; Friday afternoon, March 26 – Sunday night, April 4). It is customary to empty your house of all hametz, including any items made from barley, rye, oat, wheat, or spelt prior to Passover – even your pet’s food and even if you will be away during the holiday.

While many Jews pack up their hametz and put them out of the way, there are other methods to dispose of hametz. One way is that you can donate all of your hametz to a food bank or you can sell it to a non-Jew, using an appointed agent to conduct that transaction. To facilitate the selling of hametz, Rabbi Ferency has agreed to act as our representative and will be selling our hametz this year. Complete the form and send it to the synagogue office by March 15. It is customary to send a small donation to the synagogue in lieu of payment for these services; all donations will go to the Rabbi’s discretionary fund to help those in need during Passover.
