In the Guide you will find:

    On our site you will also find forms to download and print out for selling your chametz – click here. Please fill in the forms and fax them to us as soon as possible.

    While there, you will also find a comprehensive search for many hundreds of medicines – click here, and previous bulletins relating to Pesach.

    Although this was mentioned in the previous bulletin, it’s worth noting again:

    Many supermarkets have dedicated special sections and shelves for Pesach products, both local and imported. The Beth Din does not have any control over the stocking of supermarket shelves and we cannot guarantee that all items on these shelves are in fact kosher for Pesach. Consumers are advised to check each and every item to ensure that it has a reliable hechsher for Pesach.

    As always, our staff are available to take your queries and input. Please contact our Kashrut Division on:
