Sell Your Chametz
Chametz is "leaven" – any food that's made of grain and water that
have been allowed to ferment and "rise."
Bread, cereal, cake, cookies, pizza, pasta, and beer
are obvious examples of chametz;
but any food that contains grain or grain derivatives
can be, and often is, chametz.
Since it is prohibited to possess chametz on Passover,
any chametz left undisposed must be sold to a non-Jew.
All such chametz, as well as all chametz utensils
that were not thoroughly cleaned, should be stored away.
The storage area should be locked or taped shut for the duration of the holiday.
Since there are many legal intricacies involved in this sale,
a rabbi acts as our agent both to
sell the chametz to the non-Jew on the morning before Passover
and also to buy it back the evening after Passover ends.
