Mechirat Chametz ~ Sale of Chametz



Rabbi Safman will be handling the collective sale of chametz for the congregation. 

Members who wish to sell their chametz must submit their request designating Rabbi Safman as their agent.  Please fill out the form below and return it to the Beth El office before 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, April 8th.  (No chametz may be eaten after 10:00 in the morning on the day of the first Passover seder.)  Alternatively, you may email or call the Beth El office (, 860-442-0418) requesting to be added to the listing for the sale of chametz.



I, ____________________________________________, hereby authorize Rabbi Rachel Safman to act as my agent to sell any chametz that may be in my possession, whether I know of it or not. This applies regardless of where the chametz is located: in my home, place of business, car or elsewhere. The sale shall be in effect for the duration of Pesach which runs this year from sundown on Wednesday, April 8th until complete darkness on Thursday, April 16th and is in accordance with Jewish law. At the holiday’s conclusion, Rabbi Safman is empowered to repurchase any remaining chametz on my behalf.

Please provide your name and the address(es) at which the chametz can be found via the PayPal link below.  You will also be offered the option of making a donation towards Ma'ot Hittim (poverty alleviation) in conjunction with your form submission.  However, no donation is required to complete the transaction (simply enter an amount of $0.00) 


Printed copies of this form, including the signatory's name, address and signature (accompanied by a check made payable to Rabbi’s Discretionary Fund, should you wish) can also be sent to:

Mail to:  Congregation Beth El, P.O. Box 1310, New London, CT  06320
