There was an answer that if you find Chametz in your house, it can be put into the closet that had been rented (not sold) to the non-Jew for his chametz because the chametz belongs to him and should be put there. This was part of a discussion about destroying Chametz that had been found during Pesach (especially on Shabbat or Yom Tov). what should be done ...

When I asked the question of my Rav, he answered that part of the agreement with the non-Jew was that I could have access to the areas rented out to the non-Jew on Pesach. The access should be for as short a time as possible. Aish.com poses the question: During Pesach, may items be taken from sections of the house that have been sold? and ...

There is quite some discussion on whether toothpaste needs to be kosher for Pesach, but none I found focusing on chametz that would have gotten onto the tube or bottle. Poskim who permit regular toothpaste on Pesach do not mention this situation. R Chaim Jachter cites R Yosef Dov Soloveitchik and R Moshe Feinstein stating that that toothpaste is not ra’ui ...

Yes, Chametz is less of a problem on 14 Nisan. See Rambam Chametz UMatza 1:6-7 that on 14 Nisan consumption of Chametz "only" carries the punishment of lashes whereas on Pesach itself it carries the punishment of Karet. As an example of a stringency about Chametz which doesn't apply on 14 Nisan: see Shulchan Arukh OC 447:2 that Chametz is nullified in a ...

There are are varying pasuk I'm that we learn the prohibition of when we are no longer able to eat chametz on the 14th and is discussed at length in gemara pesachim and shulchan aruch. One of them that comes to mind is where it talks about not to slaughter the kardbon pesach over chametzz and from there we learn that one may not longer eat chametz from the ...

As usual the answer is that it is a machlokes. Apparently, lactaid milk bought before Pesach is in the same category as Vitamin D enhanced milk bought before Pesach. However, the problem is with your situation, the pills. Aparently non-chewable lactaid pills may (or may not) be acceptable (though of course CYLOR) cRc Kosher 5776 Pesach Top Ten Questions ...

Halacha The following is not discussed bellow in full. We are dealing only with Chamets mixed before Pesach Min beMino, in a dry mixture (for example flour Chamets with flour Non Chamets): Annulled one on two; a liquid mixture too. No problem of owning (Mishna Berura 442, sk 1). Min besheEino Mino (the tastes are different)mixed in a volumetric ...

My Rav replied to me that it is sufficient to clean the toaster as much as possible, shaking crumbs out, and then "Bittul Chametz will then nullify whatever tiny crumbs or absorbed chametz remains."

Star K states that toasters and toaster ovens can not be made kosher for Passover. From what I have heard from a mashgiach, the main problem is that the toaster contains small crevices where crumbs may still be present, and it is impossible to extract the chametz from there. Usually, metal ovens and toasters would be koshered using libun a hot torch. ...

No because it unfit for canine consumption pesachim 15b Shall we say that this supports him: If a loaf goes mouldy and is unfit for human consumption, yet a dog can eat it, it can be defiled with the uncleanness of eatables, if the size of an egg45b With whom agrees the following which we learned: A general principle was stated in respect to the laws of ...

Before nightfall at the start of 15 Nisan, Chametz is just like any other prohibited food in terms of nullification in mixtures (ShA OC 447:2, cf. YD 102:4) so regular rules like 1:60 and Ta'am Lifgam would apply. From that point until the end of Pesach it is never nullified in a mixture and forbids one from deriving any benefit from the mixture (OC 447:1). ...

The bitul of chametz in a mixture is the 60:1 because both of them were mutar before Pesach. The bitul of the declaration would not allow it to be eaten as that is similar to finding a piece of bread on Pesach that had been "nullified" by the kol chamirah. You would still have to destroy it on chol hamoed as it is still forbidden chametz. The difference ...

Two unrelated uses of the word bitul, which is causing some confusion here: If the quantity of chametz in this food is negligible, it's not considered "chametz." I declare any chametz I own to be "good as dust." Any question of mixtures addresses the first point, completely unrelated to the second. Here's a nice piece from the Star-K on the subject. In ...

Kefula means "doubled over." We have the same root word used in the morning bracha "zokef kefufim" (He straightens those who are bent over), or in upcoming Daf Yomi, "tenai kaful" (a legal stipulation where both possibilities are spelled out, if x then y, but if not x then z). Then there's nefucha (swelled matzah), typically a bubble, similar in appearance ...

This video says we do need to check The main thing is not to eat it From my experience the hashgocho usually takes responsibility to check, (but sometimes they miss some so if you find do not eat) See this answer it answers your question beautifully http://judaism.stackexchange.com/a/70543/5120

Kefula as is mentioned by the other answer, is a doubled over fold. You won't see these folds in store bought matzah as some of the comments have mentioned, because the ones that are baking look out for these folds and tend remove such matzot before sending the boxes out. Basically what happens is when one is placing the dough in the oven to be cooked, part ...

It would have the status of chametz she'avar alav hapesach and it would be forbidden to derive any benefit from it. Whether the sale was conditioned on his being an actual gentile or not, the chametz was definitely owned by a Jew and any further sale would accomplish nothing in terms of it's already forbidden status.

I am guessing that nothing except they both have a kabolistic prayer after them We can probably understand this better by seeing the prayer said after both procedures Starts with May it be Your will.

The laws of mixing fruit juices with flour derive from two seemingly irreconcilable Talmudic teachings: אמר רבה בר בר חנה אמר ריש לקיש: עיסה שנילושה ביין ושמן ודבש - אין חייבין על חימוצה כרת Rabba bar bar Hanna said in the name of Reish Lakish: Dough kneaded with wine, oil or honey that rises is not forbidden as chametz (Pesachim 35a) vs. ...

There are two basic operating principles: make sure your food is not contaminated by chametz, and make sure you don't own any chametz. As far as what you eat, you'd need to clean your spaces well enough that chametz doesn't wind up in your food. If there are crumbs in the fridge/pantry that could get into your Passover food, clean them -- or keep your ...

There has become a shift in how people view chametz. In the times of the Talmud people talked about the physical signs of chametz, the dough getting cracks, turning white, or making a sound if you slapped it (it it didn't make a sound it was referred to as deaf dough). So it used to be that people would look at dough to tell if it was chametz, rather than ...
