Jewish Law requires that we do not possess any chamets for the duration of Pesach. In earlier times it was relatively straightforward to ensure that all chamets was either eaten or disposed of before Pesach. Today this may not be possible. The simple solution to this problem is to put away in a secure place any chamets that cannot be consumed before Pesach. A Rabbi is appointed as an agent to sell this chamets on your behalf. Whilst he would plan to buy the chamets back after Pesach, this is in no way a condition of the sale.

We are grateful to Rabbi Yehuda Pink of Solihull & District Hebrew Congregation who has agreed to act as our agent in the absence of Central having a Rabbi at present. This year we have introduced an on-line form to make the sale of chamets as easy as pressing the send button below, but for those that want to complete a form by hand and return it to the office, you can download the form here.
