President Reuven Rivlin sold all the hametz found in his residence on Wedensday ahead of Passover.
The selling of the hamtez, or leaven bread, was done alongside Rabbi Shlomo Moshe Amar, the Sephardi Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem and the former Sephardi chief rabbi of Israel, and director-general of President's Residence Harel Tubi who oversaw the process.
The rabbi was appointed by Rivlin to sell the hametz to a non-Jew over the holiday, in which Jews customarily avoid owning or eating any leaven bread.
After thanking the rabbi, Rivlin wished for a happy and kosher holidays for all of Israel.
Rabbi Amar thanked the president and wished him a happy holiday and a swift recovery for his wife, Nechama
