Mechirat Chametz Form


Our annual Pre-Pesach Haagalas Keilim and Biur Chametz events will once again take place at the Ehrenfeld backyard at 537 Cumberland Ave. Please check the shul calendar, linked from the homepage, for exact dates and times. 

Utensils MUST be clean. No food particles or other dried matter should be stuck on the utensil(s). 

Utensils should not be used for 24 hours before immersion. 

Which materials can be kashered by haagalah?

Utensils made from any type of metal, stone (not necessarily modern stoneware), wood, bone, leather, natural rubber, hard (smooth) plastic may be koshered by haagalah.

Earthenware, china, porcelain, glassware and paper utensils cannot be kashered by haagalah.

Ashkenazim generally do not Kasher any glass products..

Any utensil which may get ruined during the haagalah process should not be kashered.

Please see the Rabbi if you have any questions or doubts with regards to this process. 

Biur Chametz will take place as noted on the shul calendar, linked from the homepage.

A bin will be set in front of the house (at 537 Cumberland Ave) for those who would like me to burn their chametz in the morning. Please recite the Kol Chamirah disclaimer at the zman.  See the calendar linked from the homepage for exact times. 

This year, we will only be accepting the pieces that are used for Bedikat Chametz.  Lulavim and Hoshanos are accepted. 

Some guidelines for burning.  Please wrap your bread crumbs in a PAPER bag or cardboard boxes (shoeboxes are GREAT) . They burn best.

Please do your best not to wrap chametz in aluminum foil as it does not burn effectively.  Also, please think twice before using plastic bags or containers as they may harm the  environment.

Please see the Rabbi if you need guidance as to what needs to be burned.
