Sell Chametz online by: Leslie Bunder

It's never too late to sell your chametz for Passover thanks to the internet. With the festival fast approaching on Wednesday night, don't panic about filling in form and trying to find a rabbi to give it to so he can do his stuff to get it officially sold on your behalf - just go online and you can do it quickly and easily.

With a number of sites out there offering this valuable service, you might even be tempted to try a few out!  But of course, you only need one and sometimes, what may look like a vast range of choices is all done through one central resource.

Chabad will help you out over at their site and provide a form that you fill in and submit.

It's that easy and there's no cost to do it.

Whether your are in New York or Moscow, it doesn't matter as Chabad will sort you out. In fact, many of the Chabad sites will all go through the same system. So you can go to a Chabad site in New York and be in the UK and get someone to sell your chamtez. Though some of the sites use specific local rabbis to handle your chametz sales.

A great and valuable free service that makes fulfilling this ritual without any hassle or complications.

By comparison, Torah.org offers a similar service, but it comes at a price.  $18 will get them to sell your chametz.  A bit pricey, but at least they are upfront about it before you use them. Proceeds go towards the upkeep of the site.

While, it is pricey, it is a good way for the site owners to get some additional funds for their valuable resource. Of course, what may have been better would be to provide the service for free with a suggestion donation if you find it useful.
