This form must be submitted no later than Tuesday, March 27 by 5:00 p.m.
By submitting this online form, I hereby appoint Rabbi Jonah Geffen as my halakhic (legal) representative to sell all chameitz owned and possessed by me, knowingly or unknowingly, as stated in the Torah and defined by the Rabbis of the Talmud. This includes chameitz; chashash chameitz (foods items which are suspected of containing chameitz); ta’arovet chameitz (foods items in which chameitz is mixed); and chameitz that may have hardened and adhered to the surface of pans, pots, or other cooking or eating utensils. I also appoint him as my halakhic representative to lease all places where the aforementioned chameitz owned or possessed by me may be found, especially in the premises indicated below. Rabbi Geffen has the full authority to sell said chameitz and to lease said place or places where said chameitz may be found, upon terms and conditions as discretion dictates. Rabbi Geffen has the full authority to assign or appoint substitutes to act in my behalf with the same authority that I have invested in him. I hereby ratify and confirm all that Rabbi Geffen or a rabbinic substitute does or causes to be done in the matter of selling chameitz on my behalf.
