Sell Your Chametz

Emanuel Congregation Chametz 2014

You may be familiar with a tradition of Passover that provides a unique and charitable way to “dispose” of chametz products for the holiday: “transfer” your chametz to Emanuel Congregation! In doing so, you also perform the traditional mitzvah of enabling people who are in need to celebrate the Passover holiday through this tzedakah contribution (commonly called maot chitim).To fulfill this mitzvah through the agency of Rabbi Zedek, you may make a check payable to Emanuel Congregation in whatever amount, noting ‘maot chitim’ or ‘Vasilkov’ on the memo line, and send it after having completed form below to:

Emanuel Congregation

Please make sure form is completed by Monday, April 14, 2014, 5:00 pm.
