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 the attached contract. We welcome you to visit us at the synagogue to complete the transaction or slip it under the office door. If you cannot come in, you can complete the contract and send it into the office as soon as possible. You may also email it to  It must be received by Sunday, April 21st at 5:00pm.

This year, Pesach 5784/2024, the general sale of Chametz will take effect on Monday morning, April 22, 2024, before 11:30am. All Chametz which was not sold must be burned by 11:58am on Monday. If the purchaser does not complete payment for the sale by Tuesday, April 30, 2024, by 9:00 pm, the agreement will be void.

We never accept personal monetary gifts for this service. We do welcome Ma’ot Chittim contributions, cash or checks made out to SOJC- Rabbi’s Discretionary Fund with “Ma’ot Chittim” in the memo. Funds will go to Pesach needs and support needy people in our local community. NOTE: Kitniyot (food made from legumes which are not eaten by Ashkenazim on Pesach) need not be sold.

The Sale of Chametz form and contributions for Ma’ot Chittim can be made on our website or by completing the contract below.
