Sale of Hametz 2024

Bill of Sale
NOTE: If possible, all hametz—food not acceptable during Pesach (Passover), or materials containing such unacceptable food—should be destroyed or given away before the holiday begins.  Should this be impossible, the hametz may be stored in such a way that we are sure not to use it during the holiday and its actual ownership is transferred to a non-Jew until the holiday ends.  This is traditionally done in the week prior to Pesach.  In any event, please complete the form below and return no later than Monday, April 22 at 9am.   To perform a kinyan sudar – a symbolic acquisition through an object – please check the website or speak with the Rabbis.

KNOW ALL PEOPLE BY THESE PRESENTS:  That I, the undersigned, do hereby make and appoint Rabbi Noah Arnow 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 hametz owned and possessed by me, knowingly or unknowingly, as stated in the Torah and defined by the sages of Israel (e.g., hametz; hashash hametz—suspect hametz; and all kinds of ta’arovet hametzhametz mixtures); also, hametz that tends to harden and to adhere to the surface of pans, pots, or other cooking or eating utensils, of whatsoever nature, for the sum of $1,000.00 and to lease all places wherein the aforementioned hametz owned or possessed by me may be found, for the sum of $1,000.00 per address, especially in the premises located at:
Please list each address you have Hametz that you would like sold.
Rabbi Arnow has the full authority and power to sell said hametz and to lease said place or places wherein said hametz may be found, upon such terms and conditions as discretion dictates.  Rabbi Arnow 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 rabbi, and I do hereby ratify and confirm all that Rabbi Arnow or a rabbinic substitute lawfully does or causes to be done by virtue of these presents.
And to this I hereby affix my signature on this date:
Hametz will be sold (and unavailable for your use) on Monday, April 22, at 11:51 am.
You may not use or receive any benefit from any hametz from that time
