We don't just wish you a kosher Pesach.
We help you make it happen!

The joy of knowing that you and your home are ready for Passover...sometimes
the preparations can seem daunting, especially if you are unfamiliar with all the
laws and traditions concerning this very special time. Don't be afraid, don't be
discouraged—The Union for Traditional Conservative Judaism wants to lend a
helping hand.

Questions? Give Us A Calls

authorities will be on call all day to pro-
vide information and advice, from what

Be Confident Your Home Is

Along with the housecleaning and the burn-
ing of residual chameitz comes mechirat
chameitz, the sale of your chameitz to a
non-Jew. To help simplify this procedure,
the U.T. C.J. has set up the National
Center for Mechirat Chameitz, with rab-
bis in each time zone in North America
who will complete the transaction at the
proper time. The' chameitz may not be
used from the time of sale on April 13th,
through the last day of Passover, April 21st.

Mechirat chameitz assures that all
chameitz has been released from your
possession—you have truly made your
home kosher for Passover. All you have to
do is contact your rabbi or fill out the
authorization below and send it to:

U .T. C J
145 North Fifth Avenue
Mount Vernon, NY 10550

The authorization must be received by
April lOth.A small donation (at least one
dollar) traditionally accompanies the
authorization, to be used for the sale as
well as for the charitable and educational
projects of the U.T.C.J. Checks or money
orders may be made payable to the Union
for Traditional Conservative Judaism.




I hereby authorize Rabbi Ronald D. Price or
his delegate in the appropriate time zone to sell
all of the chameitz in my possession by 10 a.m.
14 Nisan 5747 (Monday, April 13, 1987).
