Before Passover begins, we make sure to clean our houses thoroughly for all traces of Chametz.

But instead of throwing away items we can still use, we pack and lock away the food we don’t want to discard, and authorize a Rabbi to sell it to a non-Jew until after the holiday ends. This is called SELLING THE CHAMETZ.

To make sure there is no visible Chametz left in the house,
Before Pesach we make a Grand Search.

This year, the search for Chametz will take place on Thursday, April 2, 2015.

Popular Chametz Hideouts:
• Under the bed • In pockets • Closets and drawers • Toy chests
• School bag • School locker • In the car • School desk
• Anywhere else you can Catch those Crumbs!

The next morning (this year, it will be on Friday, April 22, 2016) we take the bag of Chametz that we found the night before and burn it before midday. Only an adult should do the burning.
