Medications With Chametz & Passover
Must medicines that contain chametz be sold to a non-Jew? Can they be swallowed or applied to the skin on Pesach? Can they be purchased and used on Pesach? Join Rabbi Dovid Fink as he learns from the sources down through today’s contemporary rulings.
Medications With Chametz & Passover: Lesson 1
In cases of threat to life, the laws of Pesach are of course set aside and medicines containing chamets can be swallowed. We will study the opinions of the great poskim regarding medicines that contain chametz in treating non-life-threatening conditions. We will cover both oral medicines and medicines applied to the skin.
