Many thought it was a joke…

Last night, we posted a picture of the next project – the Chometz Box, and many inquired if it was legitimate. Yes, it is.

Here are the details released by BMG.

BMG with the devoted partnership of Chaveirim brings you now a solution to your post-Pesach essential shopping.

Avoid shopping in stores and avoid sakanah.

Order now your POST PESACH Chometz needs for Shabbos.

Go to our website and make your post pesach Shabbos Chometz order today.

The Chometz Box has the following:

4 Gelbstein’s Challos, freshly baked after Yomtov
1 Bag of 6 Gelbstein’s Challah rolls, freshly baked after Yomtov
1 Gelbstein’s Mezonos pastry (either bag of cookies or rugelach, or a kokush or marble cake), freshly baked after Yomtov
2 boxes frozen 18-inch pizzas from Pizza on the 9 (each box contains 8 slices)

All items in the Chometz Box are Yoshon and under KCL Hashgocha.

According to Rabbi Forchheimer, you may order now before Yomtov, without concern for Chometz She’avar Al HaPesach. He also says that you are permitted to order on Chol Hamoed too without concern for Isurei Chometz, and you may pay for your order on Chol Hamoed too without issurim. Please note that there is no guarantee that the flour in these baked items will be from “new flour” picked up after Yomtov from the aino Yehudi. Limit one order per family.

Price: $45

Pickup starting 10:00AM on Friday at BMG Parking Lot on 7th Street. Please bring your order number, name and address and do not leave your vehicle, we will place your order in your vehicle for you.

BMG is also offering a “Bake your own Challah” option, you can order a 5 pound bag of Gelbstein’s pre-sifted Yoshon Flour and 16 Oz Fresh Yeast. This flour will be “Newly Acquired Flour” from after Yomtov.

Limit two orders per family of the “Bake your own Challah” Pickup Motzei Yomtov 11:00PM to 1:00AM at BMG Parking Lot on 7th Street. Please bring your order number, name and address and do not leave your vehicle, we will place your order in your vehicle for you.

Price: $10

Payment by credit card only.

Orders are non-refundable. No item can be exchanged or returned. We cannot guarantee which Mezonos pastries will be in your box. You can only buy a complete box, you cannot choose to order some items and skip others. If there are items you don’t want, feel free to share it with a neighbor (following social distancing rules).

We are making every effort to secure adequate supply but can make no guarantee and are doing our best. If we run out of supply we will post that on this website. We continue to work on supplies so we might run out and hold sales and then restart – all notices will be posted on this website. If our website accepts your order that means your order is confirmed and that you will have your order.​

Please note, that Gelbstein’s will not be opening Motzei Yomtov and Friday Isru Chag to the retail public, as they are devoting their entire team to the Chometz Box.

  1. Just stay calm…Remember that there will be Challah and Bread available in the Supermarkets too. And a full line of Chametz products too. With Social distances of course.

  2. With the crush that happens every year after Pesach, I am not convinced that there will actually be social distancing at the supermarkets, even if they try to enforce it. Hence, this a huge Toeles for the Tzibur.

  3. Mi k’amcha yisrael! The Whole idea of this is to avoid the stores on isru chag. This isn’t a money maker. It’s completely a chessed. If you want to avoid the crowds on 7th street, you can sell your own chametz as recommended by many rabbanim this year.

  4. I get that they obviously can’t cater to everyone, but there are tons of young couples in Lakewood making pesach. They should offer a smaller box without the rolls and with less pizza for couples, and have a different location to pickup. I’m not sure why they’re bringing more traffic into the heart of Lakewood.

  5. We will be posting a phone number to make orders by phone shortly.
    Thank you for your patience.

    We already distributed thousands of Pesach boxes of kitchenwares, meals and wines and did not have long lines – our operation under R’ Mutty Tress’ leadership is running efficiently. You will not have to leave your car to pickup your box – save yourself the Sakanah of shopping in stores.
