    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.

    The reason Hashem gave us two kidneys is to be able to safe our brothers in need. Thank you for remind us.
