Chametz that belonged to a Jew over Pesach is prohibted (ossur) to have benefit (haneh) from (Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim Siman 448 Sif 3.)

Is it enough that this chametz simply be thrown away or must one burn it (or any other "acceptable" way of completely destroying or getting rid of the chametz? Just like chametz from before Pesach or that which was found on Pesach) Does anyone discuss this?

  • Why would this have to be burnt? Chametz on Pesach itself doesn't have to be burnt. – Double AA Apr 28 '13 at 2:06
  • @DoubleAA Source? – Yehoshua Apr 28 '13 at 5:43
  • hebrewbooks.org/… but I think you are confusing who needs to bring a source to justify their point: the one assuming the restriction or the one not assuming the restriction? – Double AA Apr 28 '13 at 6:00
  • @DoubleAA As always if I have a source I wouldn't be asking! A very big Rov asked this question... – Yehoshua Apr 28 '13 at 6:01
  • I don't really care who asked it. You want to tell me you have no reason at all to think burning might be applicable and you are just asking about burning randomly?? If you have reason to suspect burning then please include that in the question. – Double AA Apr 28 '13 at 6:10

It seems that from the Shulchan Aruch HaRav in Siman 435 Sif-Katan 4 that chametz that was left over Pesach also needs "biur" just like the Chametz from before Pesach and wouldn't be enough to simply throw it away.

  • @DoubleAA + !?!?!? – Yehoshua Apr 28 '13 at 18:43
  • I don't follow. Isn't throwing it away a valid form of "biur" before Pesach? – Double AA Apr 28 '13 at 18:50
