Sell Your Hametz

One should try to remove from one’s home any true hametz (breads, cereals, cookies…). Any hametz that remains in your home over Pesah can be set aside in a designated area and sold for the duration of the holiday. As opposed to previous years, when many have done this transaction in person with me (who, in turn, sold all the communal hametz to someone who is not Jewish), this will be done entirely online this year, as we join with many other Conservative synagogues who are selling their hametz through the Rabbinical Assembly.

A reminder that it is traditional, when selling one’s hametz, to make a donation to “Ma’ot Hittin” (literally, “wheat money”) so that food-vulnerable people may have more easy access to food over the holiday. We encourage you to maintain that custom of tzedakah as you sell your hametz this year, as there will be more people worried about food this Pesah compared to last year. You may do so here, designating your contribution to the “Ma’ot Hittin” fund, and we will make sure all those funds go directly to agencies and projects supporting those who are hungry.
