    Authorization to Sell Hametz

    The deadline to sell Hametz online is 8:45 AM on Friday, April 15, 2022

    Please complete our online form on ShulCloud, allowing Rabbi Abi Weber to sell all of your Hametz on your behalf. A donation to tzedakah is required to make this a valid transaction. It is customary to make a donation to BZBI; to the charity of your choice; or preferably, to the Passover League in exchange for selling your Hametz.

    The Passover League distributes grants throughout the Philadelphia region to groups that provide Seders to individuals who would otherwise not have the resources or ability to attend. The Passover League also provides Passover food for home-bound Jews and distributes boxes of Passover food to hospitalized Jewish veterans. Choose the charity you wish to support when you complete the online form.
