"Sell" Your Chametz
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. 

There is no fee. You make a charitable contribution (maot chittim), which will enable Pesach observance by someone who could not otherwise afford to celebrate.
Social Justice

Every human being is created in the image of the divine, deserving respect and equality. Your gift keeps our Social Justice work going. Starting with Human Rights Shabbat, December 10th, 2021 your gift will be matched.
