If a Ba'al T'shuva had chamets that was either very important to him, or had a big monitary value and had it in his possesion over pesach before he came back, is there a possible Heter for him so that he won't have to get rid of it? This is just a quizzing question. I already know the answer.

I haven't looked it up, but I heard a shiur about something like this. Theoretically, if the fellow had a non-Jewish wife who shared joint ownership of his property, then as long as the chametz's value is <50% of everything they own, we can retroactively view the chometz as being hers and the non-chametz his.

  • But that is a very specific case. Most of the time the question is for someone not married to a non-Jew. – Bas613 Apr 12 '10 at 18:32
  • Yes; my understanding is this is a riddle along the lines of "is there any case such that ..." – Shalom Apr 12 '10 at 19:33

Shlomo, your father already answered that it is permissible for him to keep and use!
