Eating around chametz on Pesach


During Passover, a Jew may eat in the same dining room as a non-Jew who is eating Chametz. However, the two of them should not eat on the same table, even on separate tablecloths, lest some of the Chametz spill into the Jew's food.

A non-Jew may eat Chametz on a Jew's table during Passover, so long as he [the non-Jew] will clean and cover the surface afterward.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 440:3; Mishneh Berurah 440:17-18)

Have a great day,
