Sale of Chametz Form

Pesach 2024 - 5784
If possible, all chametz – food not acceptable during Pesach, or materials containing such unacceptable food – should be destroyed or given away before the holiday begins. Should this be impossible, the chametz may be stored in such a way that we are sure not to use it during the holiday and its actual ownership transferred to a non-Jew until the holiday ends.

The following contract must be filled out and submitted by 11:59pm on Sunday, 4/21. NO LATE CONTRACTS WILL BE ACCEPTED.
It is traditional to enclose tzedakah for the purpose of Maot Hittim (food distribution for Pesach). Your contributions will go to the Rabbi’s Discretionary Fund and will be used for Maot Hittim. These funds will be used to support the kosher food bank, Mazon, and to provide direct gifts to families and individuals in need during the festival season.  
KNOW ALL PEOPLE BY THESE PRESENTS: That I/We, the undersigned, do hereby make and appoint Congregation Beth Shalom my true and lawful representative to act in my place and stead, for me and in my name and in my behalf, to sell all chametz owned and possessed by me, knowingly or unknowingly, as stated in the Torah and defined by the sages of Israel (e.g., chametz; chashash chametz – suspect chametz; and all kinds of ta’arovet chametz – chametz mixtures); also, chametz that tends to harden and to adhere to the surface of pans, pots, or other cooking or eating utensils, of whatsoever nature, and to lease all places wherein the aforementioned chametz owned or possessed by me may be found, especially in the premises located at the address below. Congregation Beth Shalom has the full authority and power to sell said chametz and to lease said place or places wherein said chametz may be found, upon such terms and conditions as discretion dictates. Congregation Beth Shalom has the full power and authority to assign or appoint a substitute or substitutes to act in my behalf with all the same powers and authority that I have  invested in the synagogue, and I do hereby ratify and confirm all that Congregation Beth Shalom or rabbinic substitute lawfully does or causes to be done by virtue of these presents.
