Sale of Chametz

Sell Your Chametz

It is most important that all Chametz (leaven foods such as bread, biscuits, etc.) is disposed of or sold before Passover.

Although the non-Jew, to whom it is sold, usually sells it back after Passover, this is an entirely valid and legal sale, both in Jewish and English law.

The Chametz to be sold should be securely locked away in a room or cupboard, which will not be used over Pesach.

It is customary to empower the local Rabbi to sell one's Chametz - to do so please print and complete the [sale of chametz] form.

Please note:
THE FORM MUST BE RETURNED TO THE SHUL OFFICE NO LATER THAN THURSDAY 29 MARCH 2018 - AND NO RESPONSIBILITY WILL BE ACCEPTED FOR FORMS RECEIVED AFTER THAT DATE.

Alternatively Rabbi Lew is available for the sale of Chametz each morning after the service, or at home by appointment. He will NOT be available on Sunday 11 March, norĀ from 18-26 March.
