Organ Donation: Questions and Answers from a Jewish Perspective with Cantor Epstein
This two-part class is open to the community and hopes to increase an awareness of organ donation generally and within the Jewish community specifically. We will clearly and simply explain the different kinds of donation procedures and Jewish bioethical opinions on each. We will study sources and commentaries on the overriding Jewish concept of Pikuach Nefesh (saving a life) as well as other Jewish ethical teachings regarding donation. We will address misinformation or myths which are prevalent among many in the community. And finally, explain how to become an organ donor in New Jersey.
