On Heshy, Organ Donation and Shari Kurzock
I find it ironic that on the same day that Heshy posts his categoric "forbidden to donate organs..." diatribe, the OU put out a press release asking for liver donors for Shari Kurzock, a young woman who gained acclaim by leading a 345 city "Save A Life Tour" to stress the importance of regular blood donation.
Heshy said: Why are ther no real rabbis who advocate being an organ donor?Why are there no rabbis who are known in the real Jewish community?
I guess according to Heshy, there are no real rabbis in the OU.
Shari needs a complete liver transplant within the next few days to survive. Potential cadaver donors must be Type A or Type O blood. Anyone wanting to help Shari with a liver transplant referral should call: 877-223-3386 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
