Dear Young Israel Aish Members & Friends,
As you probably know, on Passover, not only are Jews not allowed to eat chametz (anything that has wheat, barley, spelt, oats, or rye, which has become leavened – for example; bread, pasta, cereal, cakes, cookies, beer, or scotch), but we are also not allowed to possess any chametz.
Since it’s prohibited to possess chametz on Passover, we need to sell to a non-Jew all chametz that will not be eaten or thrown away before Passover. Any chametz that we are keeping in our homes or offices for use after Passover, must be sealed and stored in closets or rooms, which should also be locked or taped shut throughout the entire Passover holiday.
This stored chametz is sold to a non-Jew by a qualified agent of the community.
Because there are many legal intricacies involved in the sale of our collective chametz, only a competent rabbi should be entrusted with its execution. If you wish, Rabbi Wyne will act as your agent, both to sell the chametz to a non-Jew before Passover starts, and to buy it back the night the holiday ends.
Please fill out the form below to authorize Rabbi Wyne as your agent:
