Going away for Pesach


One who is going away for the entire Passover still must conduct the search for Chametz before leaving, if he is in his home or workplace within 30 days before the holiday. The search should be performed on the last night before he goes away.

One may sell all Chametz within the house before the night preceding Passover, and so avoid the need to search, but one should leave over some space, clean it and search it, so as not to completely abandon the Mitzvah of searching for Chametz.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 436)

Have a great day,
