Selling Chametz for Passover
The Torah prohibits the owning of chametz (food products containing or derived from Wheat, Barley, Oat, Spelt, or Rye) during Passover.
A Jewish person who owns a large quantity of chametz which they do not wish to dispose of, because of the burden of the financial loss or environmental impact, may sell their chametz to a non-Jew.
To do this, the chametz must be set aside in a special place which is then “rented” to the buyer who has purchased it, so that it becomes the buyer’s property until after Passover.
Chametz sales are closed for this year. Thank you for participating.
