Searching the workplace for chametz


The obligatory search for Chametz is not limited to one's home; workplaces, as well as synagogues and schools, must be searched as well.

Public places, like synagogues, should be searched by their Jewish caretakers on the night before Passover, just as we search our homes that night.

[One who will not be present in his workplace on the night before Passover should search it on the last night he will be there preceding Passover, and be careful not to introduce Chametz on any subsequent day.]

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 433:10; Mishneh Berurah 433:43)

Have a great day,
