On Wednesday, July 27, 2016 a kidney transplant took place in Beilinson Hospital in Petach Tikva.  Please add the recipient, Esther bat Yaffa, and the donor, Yael bat Chana,  to your prayers.

Rabbi Yeshayahu Heber, Chairman of Matnat Chaim, has been awarded the Presidential Volunteer Medal for 2014.  
See some of the press articles about the prize.

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.
