Avis Smith, a Jewish educator in Maine, is in great need of a kidney transplant. Donating one of your kidneys is an incredible act of Chesed (loving kindness) and piety. It supports the idea that one should "not stand idly by the blood of another human being." Leviticus 19:16
The Maine Transplant Program has approved her as a qualified candidate for a transplant. The program has recommended that she find at least four more people willing to be tested as living donors. If you are willing to be considered as a potential donor for Avis, please contact Roxanne Taylor at the Maine Transplant Program and register. Complete information for potential donors can be found at
For more information about the Jewish medical ethics of becoming a living donor, check out the Halachic Organ Donor Society, www.hods.org
