Organ Donation

As a follow up to my post about the Interfaith Round table discussion about Organ Donation for the council of Muslim and Jewish physicians, I had a letter printed in the Times today. It was in response to this project that looks very worthwhile and I suspect is worth emulating in the Jewish community (at least in Liberal Judaism – where there are more choices for incorporating elements into the service and shiva).

And here’s that handout (that I prepared) with an overview of Jewish views on Organ Donation.
