IMPORTANT UPDATE
We are currently discussing resuming live services at Congregation Kol Ami after Pesach. As always, the safety of our members and guests is our primary consideration. For now please wear a mask, stay socially distanced, and remember to schedule your vaccine! Stay tuned for more updates.
We are commanded to remove all Chametz, "leaven" from our homes and possessions for the duration of the celebration of Passover. That is the reason why we painstakingly clean our homes prior to the holiday and why we search for crumbs of Chametz on the eve of the holiday with a candle and a feather. On the following morning, preceding Passover, we burn this leaven, thus symbolically proclaiming our completion of an action intended to physically remove all Chametz from our possession.

In fact, with the best effort and intention we will probably overlook some scrap of Chametz, so we proceed to ritually sell all leftover leaven. Since we no longer have ownership of this leaven, if some remains in our homes, we are nevertheless not violating the law.
