Organ transplants

I'm sure that it wasn't too many years ago that the idea of organ transplants was no more than science fiction. Today it's an almost routine medical procedure. Many, many people all over the world are alive because of the generosity of others both live and dead.

Our friend Judith Nussbaum is one of those lucky recipients. In her body is the kidney of a man who just wanted to help another human being.

Monday night there was an amazing and moving evening at the Israel Center, Jerusalem, about organ donors and recipients. Judith mc'ed and spoke about her experience. Also on the program was Robby Berman of HODS, Halachik Organ Donation Society, Prof. Etyan Mor, Director of the Department of Transplantation, Rabin Medical Center, Beilinson Campus and others.

Refuah Shleimah and good health to all.
