Organ Donation

Thursday, January 23 12:30 - 1:30 pm


Organ donation, the process of transplanting healthy human organs into sick patients, can be a life-saving procedure, which is why many Jewish authorities from across the denominational spectrum believe it to be a religious duty. Jewish tradition considers saving human life — pikuach nefesh in Hebrew — to be among the highest ethical obligations. Saving one life, the Talmud says in Mishnah Sanhedrin 4:5, is equivalent to saving an entire world.


Join Rabbi Brian Beal for an examination of the texts, both ancient and modern, that shed light on this practice through the lens of Jewish tradition.
