Selling the Chometz

Since it is prohibited to possess chometz on Pesach, we need to sell to a non-Jew all chometz that will not be eaten or burned before Pesach and all chometz utensils that will not be thoroughly cleaned by then. These are stored away in closets or rooms while preparing for Pesach. We lock or tape shut the closets or rooms, and they are leased to the non-Jew at the time of the sale. Remember to include all your chometz products that may be at your work place or vacation home. 

Since there are many legal intricacies to this sale, only a competent Rabbi should be entrusted with its execution. The rabbi acts as our agent both to sell the chometz to the non-Jew on the morning before Pesach starts, and to buy it back the evening after Pesach ends.
