Rabbi Gottlieb said the
mitzva is often neglected
because it is considered in-
convenient. For this reason,
he has sought the legal as-
sistance of several attor-
neys, who have drawn up a
"Delegation of Power of At-
torney for Sale of Hametz."
The legal form provides
for the homeowner to fill in
his name and grant Rabbi
Gottlieb the "full authority
and power" to sell the
hametz and "to lease said
place or places wherein said
hametz may be found upon
such terms and upon such
conditions as he, in his abso-
lute discretion, shall deem,
fit and proper."
Rabbi Gottlieb stressed
that the unleavened prod-
ucts will remain in the indi-
vidual's home, although
hidden away. , There is no
cost for this service, but the
form must reach this office,
no later than April 10.
Rabbi Gottlieb said- respon-
sibility cannot be accepted
for forms returned later.
Forms should be sent to the
Lubavitcher Center, 14000
