Lubavitch Makes Available
Document for Hametz Sale

Homeowners may dele-
gate the power of attorney
to Rabbi Betzalel Gottlieb to
perform the mitzva of sell-
ing the hametz according to
a legal contract drawn up
for Rabbi Gottlieb of the
Lubavitcher Center.
The document, which ap-
pears elsewhere in this is-
sue, conforms with the pre-
cept that a Jew must sell all
bread and leavened prod-
ucts that remain in his
home or on his property for
Passover. The homeowner
locks away the hametz that
he wishes to sell in a
specified place in his house;
then the rabbi acts as in-
termediary to transact a
sale of these hametz prod-
ucts to a non-Jew.
For the duration of the
Passover festival this sale is
absolutely legal and bind-
ing according to Torah law
as well as according to state
law; the hametz simply does
not belong • to the
homeowner, although it is
in his house. (After
Passover the transaction is
reversed and the hametz
again becomes the property
of the homeowner.)
Rabbi Gottlieb stressed
there is no cost for this
service, but forms mailed
in must be mailed early in
order to reach the
Lubavitch office no later
than Thursday, March

Responsibility cannot be

matza on Passover.- The
word shmura which means
"watched" in Hebrew, is
used to describe those mat-

in their baking is carefully
watched and protected
against any contact with
water from the moment of
harvest on.

Water would cause
leavening and thus dis-
qualify its use on
Passover. One should try

The Lubavitcher Center
is-offering one free shmura
matza to all who are in-
terested. These shmura
matza which are round in
form, are baked entirely by
hand under scrutinizing
supervision, to avoid any
possibility of leavening dur-
ing the baking process.
To obtain a free matza,

Center. For more informa-
