Chometz after Pesach

PUBLIC ADVISORY

Regarding the Purchase of Chometz after Pesach 5779 | 2019

GROCERY STORES

Based on our research Chometz from all Major Grocery Stores is permitted to be purchased at this time. Almost all stores in our area have no Jewish ownership, and the ones that have Jewish Ownership have divested themselves from owning Chometz for the duration of Pesach according to Torah Law. For those that prefer not to rely on any sale of Chometz the following are the best options:

BJ’s
Costco
CVS
Trader Joe’s
Wegman’s
Whole Foods

All KVH Kosher Certified Establishments have divested themselves from owning
Chometz for the duration of Pesach according to Torah Law.

Please note: The grocery store in Ulin House 30 Wallingford Rd, Brighton, MA 02135, is Jewish owned and, according to our research has NOT sold the chometz belonging to the store.

Regarding Liquor Stores a serious concern has come to light of Jewish ownership of many local Liquor stores, as well as major Liquor Distributors in the Greater Boston Area.
