Chometz Form

  • Sell Your Chometz  

    Since it is prohibited to possess Chometz on Pesach , any Chometz left undisposed must be sold to a non-Jew. [Any Chometz remaining in the possession of a Jew during Pesach may not be used, eaten, bought or sold even after Pesach.] Therefore, all Chometz that will not be eaten or burned before Pesach and all Chometz utensils 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 Chometz 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 Chometz to the non-Jew on the morning before Pesach starts and also to buy it back the evening after Pesach ends.

    Please complete the following form to Rabbi Menachem Matusof as soon as possible. 

    Delegation of Power to Sell Chometz

    Also chometz that tends to harden and adhere to inside surfaces of pans, pots, or cooking utensils, the utensils themselves, as well as pet food that contain chometz and mixtures thereof.

    Rabbi Menachem Matusof is also empowered to lease all places wherein the chometz owned by me may be found, particularly at the address/es listed below, and elsewhere.

    Rabbi Menachem Matusof also has the full power and right to act as he deems fit and proper in accordance with all the details of the Bill of Sale used in the transaction to sell all my chometz, chometz mixtures, etc., as provided herein.
