Chametz Sale 2024


In order to fulfill the commandment of the Torah to not own chametz during Passover, Jewish law provides for a procedure for the selling of our leavened goods for the duration of the Passover holiday. The Sale of Chametz will take place at 10:00 a.m. Monday, April 22, 2024. You may arrange for the sale of your chametz by completing the form before 10:00 a.m. on Monday, April 22, 2024.

If you are not logged into your Temple Israel account, you must provide the physical address where the Chametz included in this sale is located. This contract is invalid without this information.

Any additional addresses where chametz may reside? (ex. second home, work address)

In case Rabba Kaya needs to contact you.

I, the undersigned, fully empower and permit Rabba Kaya Stern-Kaufman of Temple Israel in Portsmouth to act on my behalf to sell all chametz possessed by me – knowingly or unknowingly – as defined by Torah and rabbinic law, and to lease all places wherein chametz I own may be found. I further empower Rabba Kaya to appoint a secondary agent to act on her behalf should circumstances not permit her to be able to conduct the transaction at the appointed time. This transaction will be in effect for the duration of Pesach, which this year begins with sundown on Monday, April 22, 2024 (14 Nisan) and runs through Monday, April 29, (21 Nisan) at 8:29 p.m. when the ownership of the above mentioned chametz shall return to me. This box must be checked in order to execute this contract.

By entering my printed name I acknowledge that electronic signatures have the same legal effect as ink signatures.

It is traditional to make a contribution when selling Chametz to help provide Matzah for those who cannot afford it. You are not obligated to contribute, and any amount is welcome.
