Passover Resources

As we approach the holiday of Pesah (Passover), it is not only prohibited to eat or prepare any foods that contain hametz (any sort of leavened bread product, including breads, pastries, biscuits, cookies, cakes, etc.), it is also prohibited to own such foods. There is a tradition by which one may store hametz products where they will not be accidentally used during Passover or mixed with Passover foods and sold to a non-Jew until the holiday ends, when it is re-purchased.

To sell your hametz click Here.

By filling out this form, you are permitting Rabbi Henkin to follow this tradition and sell your hametz on your behalf. If you would like him to do so, please fill out this form in its entirety no later than Wednesday, March 24.

For updated information for shopping, please check out the RA Passover Guide.
If you would like a hard copy of the form, please contact Rabbi Henkin at rabbihenkin@gmail.com.
