THE JEWISH VIEW ON ORGAN DONATION
with Sharp Healthcare Transplant Coordinator, Gina Mautz 

Judaism holds life as being sacred. For this reason, donating an organ to save a life is one of the highest act of virtue one can do. But sometimes, precisely because life is sacred, organ donation is problematic.

Jewish law distinguishes between donating organs during your lifetime and organ donation after death.  Torah also discusses which organs one can donate.

What kind of action — or inaction — should we take? When should we take it?
And when do we edge too close to playing G‑d?

This lecture will be a fascinating exposure to little-discussed aspect of Judaism.

Please join us on Tuesday, May 13th to hear from Gina Mautz who has done a tremendous amount of research on the subject.
