Disposal / Sale of Chametz

The disposal of leaven (chametz) before Passover requires the removal or storing of all chametz (food that is not kosher for Passover– Click here for the full kashrut guide). In order to enable us to fulfill this mitzvah, Jewish law provides for a technical procedure whereby we are able to sell all chametz in our possession for the duration of the holiday. This is known as Mechirat Chametz, the sale of chametz.

We will be happy to assist you with the sale of chametz. In addition, by making a contribution to the Mechirat Chametz Fund, you help us provide Seder for Jews who need help this time of year. Please fill out this form or call the office at 802-864-0218 ext 801 no later than Monday, April 3rd regarding the sale of your chametz.

The final search for chametz is performed as a small ceremony on the evening before Pesach. Click here to learn more about this ceremony.
