Yasher Koach Rabbi Simon! is where someone should go who is inspired to donate an organ to a fellow Jew in need. As Rabbi Simon mentioned in the podcast, Chaya Lipschutz, a kidney donor herself, makes the shidduch and helps the donor navigate the process. I merited to be her third liver match, joining Rabbi Simon in the family of organ donors. Given the opportunity, I would do it all over again. Reply

there are many successful therapies for kidneys, otherwise considered by today's medical western establishment dead. why focus on transplantation that also involves maiming another person? there are no other ways to do Hesed except suffering? Reply
