my experience
August 25, 2018 9:48 pm

I donated a kidney through a jewish organization several years ago. the recipient sadly did not survive. it seemed that shortly after the transplant (that went smoothly), he had an unexpected heart attack.

Is this event being held only for blood type O and A?

Ready and waiting

My husband desperately needs a kidney. He is type b. He has been waiting for two years now. We live in Montreal, Qc and hopefully we will have a branch of renewal here. Rabbi Bright of congregation Shaare Zedek has gracefully accepted to help us set up here. We’re meeting with a gentleman who helped set this program up in Toronto. We are praying that making people aware we will be fortunate to receive a kidney. Hopefully through this program many kidney patients with very low function will be helped. It is always a mitzvah to give.
