Sale of Chametz Online

Since it is prohibited to possess chametz on Passover, any chametz left un-disposed must be sold to a non-Jew.

All such chametz, as well as all chametz utensils that were not thoroughly cleaned, should be stored away. The storage area should be locked or taped shut for the duration of the holiday.

Since there are many legal intricacies involved in this sale, a rabbi acts as our agent both to sell the chametz to the non-Jew on the morning before Passover and also to buy it back the evening after Passover ends.

The following form can be copied, modified, filled out, printed and submitted to your local rabbi by early morning of April 22, 2016, local time. If you are unable to submit your form to a rabbi in person, you may submit your form online, by filling out and clicking on the submit button.

Jewish law require that your chametz be sold by the specified deadline for the location in which the owner will be on the day before Passover. Click here to look up this time for your city.

אני החתום מטה נותן בזה יפוי כח לרב ישראל לנדא - מ'מרכז חב"ד לדוברי
עברית' בטורונטו להיות שליח ומורשה במקומי למכור ביום ו', י"ד ניסן
ה'תשע"ט, את כל מיני חמץ ותערובות חמץ שלי, בעלי חיים הניזונים
מחמץ, וחמץ נוקשה. הן שלי או שיש לי או לבני ביתי איזה חלק ושותפות
או אחריות בהם. הן הנמצאים ברשותי במקומות השייכים לי או השכורים
ושאולים לי או הנמצאים בידי אחרים וכן אני נותן יפוי כח להרב הנ"ל
להשכיר את כל המקומות שנמצא בהן איזה פרט מהאמור לעיל בכתובות
כדלהלן ויכול הרב הנ"ל למכור כל המיני חמץ וכו' ולהשכיר המקומות
הנ"ל למי שירצה ובאופן שירצה הן בעצמו או ע"י שלוחו או בא כוחו.
יש לפרט להלן את מיקום החמץ בבית:

A Kosher and Happy Passover to your and your family!
