Power of Attorney for the Sale of Chametz
The ideal method of selling chametz is by completing the form and delivering it in person to R.

Sunday morning March 29 at 9:00-9:30am,
and evening at 9:00-10:00 PM
Monday evening, March 30, 9:00-10:00 PM
Please note that R. Helfgot will be leaving for Israel for a family simcha on Tuesday afternoon, March 31. Please do not mail the form but rather please come by at any of these times. After Monday evening, he will not be available and you should contact R. Aharon Ciment at Arzei Darom to sell chametz.
