Get a Good Deal on Your Chametz! 

As in previous years, Rabbi Bronstein is happy to sell your chametz. In exchange, he asks you to pay him an agent's fee (whatever amount you would like), which he gives to The New York Board of Rabbis Passover Appeal. Please send your check payable to The New York Board of Rabbis, Memo: Passover Fund, to the BAS office. Please give generously.
