Checking for Chometz

Thursday, 11th April 2019

All Rooms Where Chometz (unleavened bread) May Have Been Brought Into Must Be Checked.

One's Office, Car And Clothing Must Also Be Checked If There Is A Chance That Chometz Was Placed There. 

Before Starting Bedikas (checking for) Chometz The Brocho (blessing) Of "Baruch Ata Hashem Elokeinu Melech Haolam Asher Kidshanu B'mitzvosav V'tzivanu Al Biur Chometz" Is Recited. (This can be found in most prayer books)

After Reciting The Brocho The Searching Should Begin Immediately, And No Talking Or Interruptions Should Take Place Between The Brocho And The Starting Of The Search.

It Is Best Not To Talk Or Make [unneccesary] Interruptions Throughout The Entire Bedikas Chometz Process. Talking For The Purpose Of The Search At Hand Is Permitted.

It Is Customary To Place 10 Pieces Of Bread Throughout The Home, Which The One Doing Bedikas Chometz Should "find".

One must be Be Very Careful Not To "hide" Them Too Well, Lest They Be Forgotten And Left In The Home Throughout Pesach (Passover).

The Lights In The Room May Be Left On During The Bedikas Chometz.

After Bedikas Chometz Is Finished, It Is Important To "nullify" Any Chometz That May Be In Your Property. There Is A Special Text Of Nullification That Should Be Said, Which Is Printed In Most Siddurim (prayer books).

It Is Important To Understand What You Are Saying And Not Just Say The Aramaic Words In The Siddur With No Clue That You Are Nullifying And Making Your Chometz Hefker (ownerless), As Simply Saying The Words As A "tefilah - prayer" And Not Understanding Them Is Worthless.

The Text May Be Said In English Or Any Other Language, As Long As The One Saying It Understands What They Are Saying.
