SALE OF CHOMETZ

Sell Your Chometz Online

Since it is prohibited to possess chometz on Pesach, any chometz left undisposed  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 to be leased to the non-Jew at the time of the chometz sale.

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.
