SELL YOUR CHAMETZ HERE!
Ridding our homes of all chametz before Pesach is a requirement, but it is not entirely possible to do so, which is why we should sell our chametz to a non-Jew. This is not optional for Conservative Jews. Please download the contract, fill it out, sign it, include a check for $18 made out to Congregation Beth Israel of the Palisades (mark the memo line “rabbi's discretionary fund”), and return them to CBIOTP no later than Friday, April 7. The address is CBIOTP, 207 Edgewater Road, Cliffside Park, NJ 07010-2201. To download the contract, click here.
