Contract For Selling Chametz

Prohibition of Chometz

On Pesach it is prohibited to possess chametz (leaven). All chametz that will not be eaten or burned before Pesach must be sold to a non-Jew. All chametz utensils that will not be thoroughly cleaned by then, and are stored away in closets or rooms while preparing for Pesach. The storage area is locked or tape-shut, and leased to a non-Jew at the time of the sale.

There are many legal intricacies in this sale, thus, 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.

Locking your chametz away and giving your LOR (Local Observant Rabbi) the Signed Chametz Contract is an easy way of observing one of the most important laws in the Torah. (Contract follows below).

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