Found Chametz On Pesach

The Daily Halacha Moment - Found Chametz On Pesach 🍞


״כל השונה הלכות בכל יום - מובטח לו שהוא בן העולם הבא״ (נידה עג ע״א, מגילה כח:)


“Anyone who studies Halachot every day is guaranteed that he is destined for the world-to-come” (Megilla 28b, Niddah 73a)


Question:

What does one do if one found chametz in his house on pesach?


Answer:

If one found chametz in his home on Chol HaMoed, he must remove it from his home and burn it immediately. [1]


If one found chametz on Yom Tov, the chametz is muktzeh and may not be moved. In such a situation, one should place a pot or another object over the chametz to cover it until Yom Tov is over, and should then burn it. [2] One may also instruct a non-Jew to dispose of the chametz. [3]


If one sold all his chametz before Pesach to a non-Jew, any chametz found in his home on Pesach has the status of a non-Jew’s chametz in the home of a Jew, and it should be put with the rest of the chametz that one sold to the non-Jew. [4]

[1]. Shulchan Aruch 446:1. Kaf HaChaim 435:12 points out that a berachah should not be recited when burning the chametz on Chol HaMoed.

[2]. Shulchan Aruch 446:1.

[3]. Mishnah Berurah §7. The Mishnah Berurah points out that the general custom is to leave a pot over the chametz until after Yom Tov before burning it, instead of instructing a non-Jew to discard it on Yom Tov. However, if one is afraid that his child will come to eat it or spread it around the house, a non-Jew should be called to dispose of the chametz.
