Sale of Chametz 2023


Before Pesach, it is a requirement to eliminate all chametz (bread products or derivatives of bread products) from our possession. Jewish law does allow for chametz, especially and preferably, only in non-bread-like form (e.g. liquors, mixtures, etc.) to be sold to a gentile in those circumstances when elimination is not an option. Arrangements for such sale may be made through Rabbi Mintz through use of this form.  It must be received by Monday, April 3rd, 2023 at 5:00 p.m.

You may make the donation online at:
OR Mail your check to B'nai Israel Congregation, 27 Lloyd Street, Baltimore, Maryland 21202

"Be it proclaimed that I hereby empower and authorize Rabbi Etan Mintz to sell all chametz that may be in my possession, wherever it may be – at home, a place of business or elsewhere. This includes all goods which may be delivered to me over Passover. The Rabbi has full right to sell, dispose, and conduct all transactions, including rental of the place where the chametz is stored and rental of right of way as he deems fit and proper, for such time which he believes necessary in accordance with detailed terms and details forms explained in the contracts in their possession. The above power hereby being given is meant to conform with all Torah and Rabbinic regulations and laws, and also in accordance with the laws of Maryland."
