Sale of Hametz - Mechirat Hametz - 2009 - 5769

Since ownership of hametz (bread and other leavened products) is not allowed during Pesah, ideally all hametz in one's possession should be given away or destroyed before the holiday begins. Since this often represents a financial hardship, the practice arose for people to store away their hametz before Pesah and arrange to sell it for the duration of the holiday. Because Jewish law requires various conditions for such a sale to be effective, most Jewish communities offer to arrange the sale of hametz on behalf of their members.
