Sell Your Chametz

  • Delegation of Power for the Sale of Chametz

  • Since it is prohibited to possess chametz (any leavened grain product) on Pesach, any chametz left undisposed must be sold to a non-Jew. [Any chametz remaining in the possession of a Jew during Pesach may not be used, eaten, bought or sold even after Pesach.] 

    Therefore, all chametz that will not be eaten or burned before Pesach and all chametz 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 chametz 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. 

  • I the undersigned, fully empower and permit Rabbi Kopel Silberberg to act in my place and stead, and on my behalf to sell all chametz possessed by me, knowingly or unknowingly as defined by the Torah and Rabbinic Law (e.g. chametz, possible chametz, and all kind of chametz mixtures).

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

    You are also empowered to lease all places wherein the chametz may be found, particularly at the address listed below, and elsewhere.

    You have 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.

    You also have the full power and right to act as he deems fit and proper in accordance with all the details of the Contract of Sale used in the transaction to sell all my chametz, chametz mixtures, etc., as provided herein. This power is in conformity with all Torah, Rabbinic and Civil laws.
