Sale of Chametz 2022/5782

Sale of Chametz

According to Jewish law, one must not have any chametz in his or her possession during Pesach.  This is accomplished in a number of ways: we use up as much chametz as possible before the festival, we thoroughly clean our home, we give any unopened packages to the needy, we check our homes for chametz and symbolically burn chametz we find, we recite a formula declaring any chametz that has not been found to be nullified “as the dust of the earth”.  Finally we sell any chametz we wish to keep over the festival to a non-Jew so that it will not be in our possession.

Anyone who wishes to sell their chametz and to have the synagogue assist them in doing so should fill out the form below, appointing Rabbi Wittenberg to act on their behalf in the sale of the chametz.

Please note: forms must be completed by 5pm on Wednesday 13th April 2022 to guarantee that they will be processed before Pesach.


I/We authorise Rabbi Jonathan Wittenberg to sell my/our chametz on my/our behalf before Pesach 5781, in whatever manner he sees fit.

Location of the chametz (eg in loft, in shed, in lower right hand cupboard in kitchen, etc.  The chametz should not be accessible during the week of Pesach).
Please include your address.
