Check your pockets


We have begun to learn about the search for Chametz.

In cleaning for Chametz, one is supposed to check any place in which he might have brought Chametz food during the year, even if he is fairly sure he didn't bring any Chametz into that space.

This includes checking the pockets of one's clothing. Even one who is certain he didn't put Chametz in his pockets should still check; people put Chametz in their pockets absent-mindedly.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 431:1, 433:3, 433:11; Mishneh Berurah 431:4, 433:47)

Have a great day,
