Sell your chametz
Use this online form to sell your unleavened possessions for Passover.

Any Chametz left undisposed must be sold to a non-Jew. Since there are many legal intricacies involved in this sale, a rabbi acts as our agent both to sell the Chametz to a non-Jew on the morning before Passover and also to buy it back the evening after Passover ends. Use this online form to quickly delegate a rabbi to sell your Chametz for you.
 
Meal of Moshiach
Shabbos, April 27, 6:30 pm (starting with Mincha)

Just when you thought you had seen it all! This day, the final day of Passover, emphasizes an even higher Freedom! It is dedicated to our imminent and final redemption.

Following the custom of the Baal Shem Tov, founder of Chassidism, Passover concludes with a "Feast of Moshiach." This festive meal complete with Matzah and, yes, four cups of wine, begins before sunset. It is the perfect way to spiritually take leave of Passover and open our consciousness to the coming redemption.
