On Pesach it is forbidden to keep Chametz, its mixtures and/or derivatives in one’s possession. All Chametz not destroyed must be sold to a non-Jew. Bedikat Chametz (searching for leaven) takes place on Thursday evening, 14 April 2022 after 7:52pm. The formal sale of Chametz to a non-Jew takes place on Friday morning, 15th April 2022.

The Shule office will need your form by 12 noon, Thursday 14 April 2022. Responsibility cannot be accepted for forms reaching the Rabbi after this time. Please note the procedure for the Sale of Chametz.
 

  1. The Rabbi is appointed as an agent of the seller of the Chametz to sell it to a non-Jew or to appoint someone else to sell it. As a result, the non-Jew is then allowed free access to the Chametz he purchases.
     
  2. This procedure is a bona fide sale in accord with Talmudic and secular law.
     
  3. It is prohibited to derive any benefit from Chametz which has been kept by a Jew during Pesach.
     
  4. Should one find Chametz in one’s house during Chol HaMoed, the Chametz should be burned (or destroyed). If found on Yom Tov, one should cover it with a vessel until the conclusion of Yom Tov and then burn it.
     
  5. The sale of Chametz form can only be emailed/mailed to the Office not later than 12 noon, Thursday 14 April, 2022..
