Prepare for Passover: Perform the mitzvah that performs another mitzvah.
Chametz submissions due by Tuesday, April 4, 2023
In addition to the halacha (Jewish Law) that prohibits eating chametz (leaven) during Pesach, we are also forbidden halachically to own chametz or even to have it on our premises. Tradition provides a legal procedure whereby we can "sell" our chametz and, an hour after the end of the holiday, purchase it back (without an actual delivery or pick-up!). "Selling" implies full rights of ownership, with access.
Chametz (leaven) includes any food or drink that includes wheat, barley, oats, spelt or rye. Ashekanzic Jews add rice, millet, corn and legumes. Sephardic Jews include potatoes. Chametz comes in any form - even miniscule residue on pots, dishes, cutlery.
Selling indicates full rights of ownership.
