Looking at Chametz on Pesach:[1]

There is no prohibition against looking at Chametz on Pesach.[2] Thus, one may enter a store which sells Chametz, and walk through areas where Chametz can be seen, and may even allow a gentile to eat Chametz in one’s home, as explained in Halacha 10.


[1] Admur 440:2-3

[2] The reason: As the verse states “Lo Yiraeh Lecha, which teaches us that only one’s own Chametz may not be seen, while the Chametz of others are permitted to be seen. [Admur ibid]
