    1. I will be in Yerushalayim for Pesach. My friend told me that I have a problem selling chametz with my Rav in the states because by the time he sells it will be past the Zman for us in Eretz Yisroel because of the time deference. Is this true?

    2/ Does any one know of a good takeout in yerushalayim for Shabbos Hagadol and for Pesach? good hechsher.


    Tell your Rav you are going to EY. Ask him if there is a problem and if he can accommodate you.

    I recently saw an ad online for a takeout in Yerushalayim for Shabbos Hagadol and Pesach. Don’t remember the name of the place, but I’m sure if you search on the internet you should be able to find it.


    When we sold our chometz in previous years, the Rov included on his form ARE YOU Going to a different time zone for Pesach? If so, he made sure to take care of selling the chometz before the zman in Israel.

    Simcha, I hope you used a false name, as it is not safe to advertise that you are leaving the house for yom tov. You don’t want robbers to invade your home, chas v’ shalom.


    I recommend Jerusalem Cuisine they do catering for both Shabbos Hagadol and Pesach-reasonable prices and nice variety of food.

    You can find them online but I’m not sure if I’m allowed to include the URL here which is their name in one word or call them at 02-651-9821.


    One person I know solved the problem by selling his chometz to the rav before he left. The Rov then sold it to the non-Jew together with his chometz. After Pesach, the rav bought it back from the non-Jew and then sold it (or gave it back) to the traveller.
