If possible, all hametz – food not acceptable during Pesah (Passover), or materials containing such unacceptable food – should be destroyed or given away before the holiday begins.
Should this be impossible, the hametz may be stored in such a way that we are sure not to use it during the holiday and its actual ownership, and the ownership of the space in which it is stored, is transferred to a non-Jew until the holiday ends.
I will conduct a sale of your hametz on your behalf. To authorize me to do so, complete this contract online or download the Contract for Selling Hametz (and return it to me).
Please return the contract no later than 8:30 am, April 3, 2015.
-Rabbi David Greenstein.

Rabbi David Greenstein arrived at Shomrei Emunah in August 2009 with a rich, broad and deep background as a rabbi, cantor, artist, scholar, and teacher. Being Shomrei’s rabbi, he says, allows him to draw on all of these passions, as well as his lifelong commitment to building Jewish communities.
