by Rabbi Dov Linzer (Posted on January 14, 2024)

Is it a mitzvah to donate one’s organs? What differences might there be between live donations, such as a kidney, and donations after death? Does halakha require or even allow me to sacrifice part of my body or expose myself to a possible risk of life in order to save the life of another person? Find out how Rav Moshe answered these questions in the newest episode of Iggros Moshe A to Z with host Rabbi Dov Linzer.
