Sell Your Chametz Online

Use this online form to sell your chametz for Passover.

Note: Leading halachic authorities have ruled that online authorizations are acceptable for the purpose of selling chametz. The traditional and preferred practice, however, is for the authorization transaction to be done in person with the local rabbi.

Chabad.org makes this service available online at no charge, to provide every Jew with the opportunity to have their chametz sold for Passover.

About the Sale of Chametz

Since it is prohibited to possess chametz on Passover, any chametz left undisposed must be sold to a non-Jew.

All such chametz, as well as all chametz utensils that were not thoroughly cleaned, should be stored away. The storage area should be locked or taped shut for the duration of the holiday.

Since there are many legal intricacies involved in this sale, a rabbi acts as our agent both to sell the chametz to the non-Jew on the morning before Passover, and also to buy it back the evening after Passover ends.

The form on this page may be copied, modified, filled out, printed and submitted to your local rabbi by early morning of April 14, 2014, local time. If you are unable to submit your form to a rabbi in person, you may submit your form online.

Jewish law requires that your chametz be sold by the specified deadline for the location in which the owner will be on the day before Passover. Click here to look up this time for your city.

One may eat chametz until two seasonal hours before midday on the day before Passover—this year, April 14, 2014. Click here to look up this time for your city.
