Burning Our Own Chametz

Burning Our Own Chametz

Now is our chance to write down some personal chametz of which we wish to be rid. When everyone is finished, we put our chametz together in a bowl for symbolic burning.

Together we recite the blessing for burning chametz :

Baruch atah Adonai, Eloheinu Melech ha’olam, asher kidshanu b’mitzvotav v’tzivanu al biur chametz.

We praise You, O God, Sovereign of the Universe, Who hallows out lives with commandments, Who has commanded us to burn chametz .

(The papers are discarded)

Every sort of chametz in my possession, which has met my gaze or has not met my gaze, which I have destroyed or have not destroyed, let it be null and void, ownerless, like the dust of the earth.
