Selling Chametz 2019

  • How do I sell?

    Take the chametz you want to save - the food, the drinks and the utensils used throughout the year (and not koshered for Passover) - and store them away in a closet or room that you will lock or tape shut. Then, authorize an experienced rabbi to make a legally binding sale according to both Jewish and civil law. He will sell all your Chametz just before Passover, and buy it back as soon as the holiday is over. 

  • Leading halachic authorities have ruled that online authorizations are acceptable for the purpose of selling chametz. The traditional and preferred practice, however, is for the authorization transaction to be done in person with the local rabbi.

    Chabad of Palmetto Bay & Deering Bay makes this service available online at no charge, to provide every Jew with the opportunity to have their chametz sold for Passover.
