โ€œAnyone who studies Halachot every day is guaranteed that he is destined for the world-to-comeโ€ (Megilla 28b, Niddah 73a)


Question:

May one appoint a Shaliach (proxy) to perform Bedikat Chametz for him?

Are women allowed to perform bedikat chametz?


Answer:

One may designate a shaliach, a proxy, to perform bedikat chametz on oneโ€™s behalf. [1]

One may ask his sons or friends to help him perform the bedikah. Those who are participating should listen to the head of the householdโ€™s berachah and not recite their own individual Berachot. [2]

However, If the entire bedikah is being performed through a shaliach, the berachah should be recited by the shaliach. [3]


Bedikat chametz may be performed by a woman or a child who has reached the age of chinuch. However, it should preferably be performed by an adult male. [4] A woman who lives alone or shares an apartment with other women is obligated to perform bedikat chametz in her home. [5]
