|Halacha - Flour Grinded after Pesach|
|Submitted by Rivka Rochel Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh|
|Question: 1) Why are people in Israel strict to eat flour that was grinded after Pesach - even from companies that sold their chametz. 2) Does it make send to be strict on this and sell your own whiskey? Or oare these not related. Thank you
They are concerned that the mechiras chametz may not have been valid for various reasons. This is a chumra and depends upon your minhag, because today many precautions are taken to insure the legitimacy of the sale.
One certainly must sell whiskey for Pesach, as it is chometz and may not be used after Pesach if it was not sold.
