Prohibition to own Chametz

 

Since it is prohibited to possess chametz on Pesach, any chametz left undisposed must be sold to a non-Jew. [Any chametz remaining in the possession of a Jew during Pesach may not be used, eaten, bought or sold even after Pesach.]

Therefore, all chametz that will not be eaten or burned before Pesach and all chametz utensils that will not be thoroughly cleaned by then should be stored away.

The storage area should be locked or taped shut to be leased to the non-Jew at the time of the chametz 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 chametz to the non-Jew on the morning before Pesach starts and also to buy it back the evening after Pesach ends.

The form on the left can be copied, filled out, printed and submitted to Rabbi Sasonkin before Passover.

If you are unable to submit your form in person, you may submit your form online.

I, the undersigned, fully empower and authorize Rabbi Moshe Sasonkin to act in my place and stead, and on my behalf to sell all CHAMETZ possessed by me (knowingly or unknowingly) as defined by the Torah and Rabbinic law (e.g. Chametz: doubt and suspicion of Chametz, and all kinds of Chametz mixtures).

 

Also Chametz that is unfit for humans, food that tends to adhere to a surface of the inside of pans, pots or cooking utensils, and all kinds of live animals or birds that eat Chametz or mixtures thereof.

 

Rabbi Moshe Sasonkin is also empowered to lease all places wherein the Chametz owned by me may be stored or found, especially in the premises specified below and elsewhere.

 

Rabbi Moshe Sasonkin has the full right to sell and to lease by transactions as he deems fit and proper and for such time as he believes necessary in accordance with all details, terms and forms explained in the general contract of sale which will be signed on the instruction of Rabbi Moshe Sasonkin or by himself.  This authorization is made a part of the contract.

 

Also I do hereby give said Rabbi Moshe Sasonkin full power and authority to appoint a proxy in his place with the full power to sell and to lease as provided herein. The above given power is in conformity with all Torah, Rabbinical regulations and laws in accordance with Civil laws.
