Contract to Sell Chametz for Pesach


Mount Freedom Jewish Center 
Passover 5784:
April 22 - April 30


Before Pesach it is a requirement to eliminate all Chametz from our possession. Halacha does allow for Chametz (e.g. liquors, mixtures, etc.) to be sold to a non-Jew in those circumstances when elimination is not an option. Arrangements for such sale should be made through our rabbi using this attached contract. We welcome you to visit us at the synagogue to complete the transaction, if you prefer, the rabbi will be available after morning minyan during the week. Or, if you would like, you can arrange a specific appointment with the rabbi. If you will be unable to submit this form online or come in to the shul, you may complete a printed version of this contract and send it in to the office as soon as possible, however it must be received by Sunday, April 21, 2024.


This year, Pesach 5784/2024, the general sale of Chametz will take effect on Monday morning, April 22 before 11:30am. All Chametz which was not sold must be burned/destroyed by 11:48am on Monday. While the rabbi does not accept personal monetary gifts for this service, he encourages contributions to MTFJC relief fund, Ma’ot Chitim, for those in need.  All of these funds will go to Pesach needs and support needy people in and around our community.


NOTE: Kitniyot (food made from legumes, not eaten by Ashkenazum on Pesach) need not be sold.  Chametz utensils as well, should not be sold so as not to require a new Tevilah immersion.
