Sale of Chometz Form

Since it is prohibited to possess Chometz on Pesach, any Chometz left indisposed must be sold to a non-Jew. [Any Chometz remaining in the possession of a Jew during Pesach may not be used, eaten, bought or sold even after Pesach.] Therefore, all Chometz that will not be eaten or burned before Pesach and all Chometz utensils that will not be thoroughly cleaned by then should be stored away. The storage area should be locked or taped shut by Wednesday, April 5 11:46 am to be leased to the non-Jew at the time of the Chometz sale which will occur on that day (April 5).


Since there are many legal intricacies in this sale, only a competent rabbi should be entrusted with its execution. The rabbi acts as our agent both to sell the Chometz to the non-Jew on the morning before Pesach starts and also to buy it back the evening after Pesach ends.

The following form should be submitted to Rabbi Yehuda Spritzer by Tuesday, April 4. Although forms may be completed until Wednesday morning, April 5, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to process any forms submitted past April 4.

I (we*), the undersigned, fully empower and permit Rabbi Yehuda Spritzer to act in my place and stead, and on my behalf to sell all Chometz possessed by me, knowingly or unknowingly as defined by the Torah and Rabbinic Law (e.g. Chometz, possible Chometz, and all kinds of Chometz mixtures. Also Chometz that tends to harden and adhere to inside surfaces of pans, pots, or cooking utensils, the utensils themselves, and all kinds of live animals and pets that have been eating Chometz and mixtures thereof.)

Rabbi Yehuda Spritzer is also empowered to lease all places wherein the Chometz owned by me may be found, particularly at the address/es listed below, and elsewhere. Rabbi Yehuda Spritzer has full right to appoint any agent or substitute in his stead and said substitute shall have full right to sell and lease as provided herein.

Rabbi Yehuda Spritzer also has the full power and right to act as he deems fit and proper in accordance with all the details of the Bill of Sale used in the transaction to sell all my Chometz, Chometz mixtures, etc., as provided herein. This power is in conformity with all Torah, Rabbinic and Civil laws.

* husband and wife, specify names.
