Selling Hametz Declaration/Passover Fund Contribution

Selling Chametz: The Torah instructs that in observing Pesach all leaven must be removed from one’s home or destroyed. To protect against excessive waste and financial hardship, the Rabbis permit the individual to sell one’s chametz to a non-Jew until Passover is complete. It is traditional at that time to make a contribution to the Maot Hittim, the Passover Fund, which helps needy Jews purchase the necessities to celebrate Pesach. To arrange for the sale of your chametz, please see Rabbi Small or Mr. Pinchover in person, or submit this declaration to the Emanuel office by noon, Friday April 22, 2016.
