In an unusual pre Passover chametz sale, a man sold the city’s chametz to his father, according to press reports in Israel.
The unusual sale ceremony was held at the Viznitz Hasidic sect in the Israeli city of Elad.
The man, who converted to Judaism was sitting alongside his father, still a non Jew, with the local rabbi, where the son represented some city residents by selling their chametz to his father.
The two, immigrated to Israel from Russia several years ago.
The son, converted to Judaism three years ago. He is married and now lives in Elad. “The father has not yet decided if he will convert to Judaism in the near future. Anything is possible,” a friend close to the family told YourJewishNews.com.
