Mechirat Chametz — Selling Your Chametz
April 8 @ 10:00 am
During Pesach, we are prohibited from owning any chametz. Centuries ago, our Rabbis established a legal method that enables us to sell our chametz to a non-Jewish neighbor and retrieve it at the conclusion of the festival. The document is called a “Shtar Mechira.”
There are several ways to sell your chametz.

You must sell your chametz before 10 am by Wednesday, April 8, 2020.
I, the undersigned, hereby relinquish ownership of all chametz and chametz mixtures in my possession. I authorize Mr. Daniel Nesson or any subsequent agent that he may appoint, to act on my behalf for the purpose of selling my chametz and chametz mixtures (see definitions below) to a non-Jew for the duration of the Passover Festival. I further agree that I will gather all the chametz, chametz mixtures, and all cookware, utensils, dishes, and all items used to prepare or consume chametz, and place them in a segregated, clearly marked area. This contract absolves me of all chametz of which I am unaware. In this regard, I intend on making a donation to tzedakah.
