Welcome to the Matnat Chaim organization!

OtHanasiRabbi Yeshayahu Heber, Chairman of Matnat Chaim, has been awarded the Presidential Volunteer Medal for 2014.  The Presidential Volunteer Medal is the most prestigious award in the field of volunteering, awarded each year by the President of the State of Israel to twelve exceptional volunteers or volunteer organizations.
See some of the press articles about the prize.

On Sunday, May 22, 2016 two kidney transplants took place, one in Ichilov Hospital in Tel Aviv and one in Beilinson Hospital in Petach Tikva.  Please add the recipients, Neriya ben Naomi and Oshri ben Shulamit, and the donors, David Netanel ben Leah and Eden Ariel ben Dina Sara,  to your prayers.

Matnat Chaim is Hebrew for Gift of Life. The goal of Matnat Chaim – volunteers for kidney transplantation – is to encourage voluntary kidney donation and to make contact with potential matching recipients. All donations are purely voluntary – this is termed “altruistic” kidney donation. We also make every effort to simplify and shorten the administrative procedures involved.
