"Chametz" refers to any food product made from wheat, barley, rye, oats or spelt, which has come in contact with water and has been allowed to ferment and rise. Since it is prohibited to possess chametz on Passover, any chametz left un-disposed must be sold to a non-Jewish person. All such chametz, as well as all chametz utensils that were not thoroughly cleaned, should be stored away. The storage area should be locked or taped shut for the duration of the holiday. Since there are many legal intricacies involved in this sale, a rabbi acts as the agent both to sell the chametz to the non-Jewish person on the morning before Passover, and also to buy it back the evening after Passover ends.
