Sale of Chametz - Pesach

Mechirat Chametz

During Pesach it is not permitted to own any chametz. To avoid having to throw or give away the chametz that we may have in our possession, we sell it to a non-Jewish person for the duration of the festival. Often people will authorise a person within the community to sell the chametz on their behalf.

Rabbi Lewin has offered to be that authority. If you would like him to sell your chametz for the purposes of Pesach 5784 (2024), please click here to download a copy of the form. Completed forms can be e-mailed to

All declarations must be received no later than Thursday, 18 April 2024.
