Owning Chametz & Halacha
We are prohibited from owning chametz on Pesach. What about being a partner in something which owns chametz or owning shares in a corporation which in turn owns chametz? What about owning chametz which is located in a time zone where it is not yet Pesach or where Pesach has already ended? What about chametz which is needed for medical reasons? Join Rabbi Dovid Fink as he explores the halachot of these practical scenarios.
Owning Chametz & Halacha: Lesson 1
CHAMETZ AFTER PESACH AND CORPORATE OWNERSHIP: If a Jew violates Pesach by owning chametz, that chametz is prohibited even after Pesach. We will begin by studying the extent of this prohibition, focusing on chametz owned by joint stock corporations. Many Jews own shares in corporations which in turn own chametz. Are these Jews violating Pesach? If so, is the corporate chametz prohibited even after Pesach?
Owning Chametz & Halacha: Lesson 6
FLOUR II AND TIME ZONES: Today we will finish our discussion of flour. Then we will begin the analysis of owning chametz located in another time zone. If you are in one time zone and your chametz is in another, is the chametz prohibited according to the beginning and end of Pesach in your time zone or in the time zone of the chametz?
