Bedichat Chametz - The Search for Chametz
The search for the chametz should be conducted Tuesday Evening, April 4. Using a candle, feather and wooden spoon, we search for chametz in our homes. To make sure that the search is successful, several pieces of bread are scattered throughout various parts of the house by an adult to be collected by the children during the search. Before the actual search begins, light the candle and recite this blessing:
Baruch atah Adonai elohaynu melech ha’olam asher kidshanu bemitzvotav vetzivanu al bi’ur chametz.
Praised are You, Lord our God, Ruler of the Universe, who has made us holy with mitzvot and instructed us to remove the leaven.
After all of the chametz has been gathered and placed into a bag, recite this:
Kol chamira vechamiya de’ikah virshuti dela chamitay u’dela vay’artei udela yadana lay libtayl veílehevay hefker ke’afra de’ara.
Any leaven that may still be in the house, which I have not seen or have not removed, shall be as if it does not exist, and as the dust of the earth.

Bi-Ur Chametz - Burning the Leaven
On Wednesday Morning, April 5th at 10:00 am, take all the leaven still remaining in the house together with the leaven collected during the search the previous night and burn it. When the leaven is burned, one may recite the following:
Kol chamira vachamiya de’ika birshuti (dechamitay) u’dela chamitay devayartay u’dela vayartay libtayl ve’lehavay hefker ke’afra de’ara.
Any leaven that may still be in the house (which I have seen and not seen, which I have or have not removed), shall be as if it does not exist, and as the dust of the earth.
“Unleavened bread shall be eaten throughout the seven days; and there shall be no leavened bread or leavening seen with you, in all of your borders.” (Exodus: 13:7)
