Selling Your Chametz and Giving Maot Chittin
Rabbi Septimus will be available to be made your agent to sell chametz this coming Monday and Tuesday following the early Shacharit Minyan, as well as Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Thursday following the Mincha/Ma'ariv minyan. You are able to meet with Rabbi Septimus at his home, 718 Sherwood Street, at the following dates/times:

Sunday, April 2nd, 9:00-10:30am
Monday, April 3rd, 8:30-10:00pm
Sunday, April 9th, 10:00-11:30am
Sunday, April 9th, 8:30-10:00pm

Completed forms can also be emailed to the rabbi or dropped off in his mailbox; however, you must receive direct confirmation of receipt from Rabbi Septimus.

Maot Chittin can also be given to Rabbi Septimus, but unlike Matanot L'Evyonim of Purim, Maot Chittin is best when distributed to the poor well in advance of Pesach. Donations can be via check to the shul or online (mark payment Maot Chittin or Pesach Poor) and will be distributed to people in need locally as well as to poor people in Sderot.
