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.
