Jewish Law requires that we do not posses any chametz for the duration of Pesach.

The Rabbi is appointed as an Agent to sell this chametz on your behalf. Whilst he would plan to buy back the chametz after Pesach, this is, in no way, a condition of the sale. In completing the form below you are authorising Dayan Binstock to sell your chametz. If you have any queries about this or any other aspect of Pesach, please feel free to contact Dayan Binstock either at home or at the Synagogue.
Dayan Binstock has the full right to sell and to lease by transactions as he deems fit and proper, for such time which he believes necessary, in connection with all detailed terms and forms as explained in the general contract of sale, which will be drawn up by Dayan Binstock to sell the Chametz.
This authorisation is made part of that contract. I also give Dayan Binstock full power to appoint a proxy in his place with full power to sell and to lease as provided herein.
This authorisation is given in conformity with all Torah and Rabbinical regulations.
