The death of one family member is an unfortunate and traumatic event.
In recent years, many Rabbis have encouraged organ donation from the deceased to save the lives of patients awaiting transplantation.
Unfortunately, in the past year, the volume of patients awaiting transplant has grown.
To a peak of three years.
About six months ago, we began organizing and promoting organ donation awareness from donors
who died outside the hospital, in accidents or other traumatic events.
The move began with the research work prepared by Shiur Vav Yeshiva student Gilad Admon, a senior medic.
This week we held a meeting with Dr. Tamar Ashkenazi, head of the National Transplant System.
At the meeting, ways to promote and create this were discussed, for optimal collaboration between all the related entities.
"anyone who saves a life is as if he saved an entire world".
