I'm flying abroad for Passover - do I need to clean my house with vinegar? - Voila! Judaism

Many times in our daily lives halachic questions arise and topical doubts arise.

Rabbi Shai Tahan, head of the Sha'arei Ezra community and head of Beit Erzi HaLevanon, makes the laws accessible to us and answers questions asked in the Beit Midrash and outside of it.

And this week: Is someone who leaves his home for all of Passover - obligated to check his home for leaven?



I wanted to ask the rabbi if the travelers for Passover are required to check the house.



Hello to you.

The one who leaves his house for the days of Passover may sell his house with all its contents and thus be exempted from cleaning the house and checking for chametz, since the place is not his for that time nor does he stay there, according to the writing of Haor Lezion (13 page 10). And he added there the proper oil so that he does not run out of unleavened bread on his own The inspection will cancel the Mitzvah, and therefore he will clean at least one room properly, and then he will inspect it, and he can also bless this inspection.

And those who do not want to clean any room at all may clean their car and do the chametz test there, since usually when they leave the house they are with the car, and since the car must be cleaned for Pesach anyway, therefore he can fulfill the mitzvah of checking the chametz in his car with a lamp and a blessing, as well as a ruling in Or Lezion (H "3 page Aa in the comments).

And if he travels to a hotel and the like, he can observe the mitzvah of testing the leaven in his room that he rents for the holiday and first clean it well and then do the leaven test there.
