Mitzvah #3 - No Chametz should be seen on Jewish property during Pessach

No Chametz (leaven) is allowed to be seen on Jewish property during the 7 days of Passover. (Eight days in the Diaspora.)

This applies to Chametz belonging to a Jew, as well as Chametz belonging to a non-Jew for which the Jew is responsible for.

Applies to males and females everywhere, during Pessach.

Pasuk: No Chametz may be seen in your property... for seven days (Shmos 13:7)
