Below please find the form for selling of the Chametz. Please read it through before authorizing as it is a legal contract.

With wishes of a happy and healthy Passover for all,

Rabbi Eli Kaminetzky



Since it is prohibited to possess chametz on Pesach, it must be sold to a non-Jew. This goes for all chametz that will not be eaten or burned before Pesach and all chametz utensils that will not be thoroughly cleaned by then. These are stored away in closets or rooms while preparing for Pesach.

The storage area is locked or taped, and they are leased to the non-Jew at the time of the 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.

Before Passover one must get rid of all Chametz (Leaven).

Locking your chametz away and giving a Rabbi this form (signed by you) is an easy way of observing one of the most important laws in the Torah.

Please remember that chametz which remains in the possession of a Jew over Pesach may not be used, eaten, bought or sold even after Pesach.



I, the undersigned, fully empower and permit Rabbi E. Kaminetzky to act in my place and on my behalf to sell all Chametz possessed by me, knowingly or unknowingly as defined by the Torah and Rabbinical Law.

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

Rabbi E. Kaminetzky has full right to appoint any agent or substitute in his stead and said substitute shall have full right to sell and lease as provided herein.

Rabbi E. Kaminetzky or his agent 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 Chametz, Chametz mixtures, etc., as provided therein.

This power is in conformity with all Torah, Rabbinic and Civil laws.
