Selling chametz and time zone issues


One who will travel for Pesach to a part of the world which is in a later time zone than his home is in, and who leaves behind chametz in his home time zone, should arrange for an agent in his home time zone to sell his chametz.

He should also stipulate that the agent buying back the chametz after Pesach is not buying it back for him, but only for that agent himself. Then, when he returns home, he can buy it back from the agent.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 4:94)

Have a great day,
