[Selling hametz refers to the creation of a “legal” way to prevent extreme financial hardship in observing the Passover regulations. Thus, it is permissible to “sell” large stocks of expensive liquors, cooking utensils, and other “hametzdik” items to carry out the mitzvah of ridding our homes of any kind of hametz. This “selling” does not include explicit hametz i.e. foodstuffs, perishable or not. This is a wonderful opportunity to donate closed boxes and cans to the Brookline Food Pantry. This contract does not free one from the necessity of “koshering” one’s home for Pesach.]
