Connection to the 1st donor

The 1st donor seemed like such a perfect match -- similar to the way his biological brother was -- has anyone ever looked into whether or not the 1st donor was related to him in any way? Could he have been a long, lost relative?

Beautifully told. Maybe shouldn't need a miracle?

There was an article on Aish recently about a Monsey, NY couple who went on vacation to Israel this year. Suddenly, the young lady had liver failure and was dying. She needed an emergency transplant. She was air lifted to France where, by law, everyone is a potential organ donor unless they opt out. There were PLENTY of organs available and the young lady BH" lived.

We (Jews) have some sort of issur (prohibition) about organ donation. But paradoxically, saving a life is the greatest mitzvah, to the extent that we should run to break Shabbos to preserve another life even for one extra moment.

I would love it if Aish would expore the ethics of organ donation in halacha and explain why -when there is SUCH an enormous need, and yet, there is nebuch an abundance of unused, undonated organs - why do we not advocate organ donation and why would we not advocate for national mandatory organ donation (with an opt-out option) as a life-focused compassionate culture.

Two articles this year about young frum people suddenly and surprisingly in need of organ transplants. How many do we not hear about? How many don't get a miracle. Is davening enough? Or are we required to do more?
