Rabbi Receives Kidney From Methodist

With organs worth their weight in gold (due mainly to a massive shortage worldwide) the fact that this Rabbi received one at all (despite being on a very long waiting list) is amazing in itself.

(Ynet News) When a New Jersey Methodist minister heard a local rabbi needed a kidney transplant, religious differences did not stop her from stepping forward to offer him one of her own.

Rabbi Andrew Bossov is one of nearly 70,000 Americans currently awaiting a kidney transplant, and is set to receive a kidney from minister Karen Onesti on January 23., at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia.

"I asked him how he was, he said he needed a kidney, so I said I would give him one of mine," said Onesti. "My family lives to their mid-90s and we have good kidneys."

Hopefully this new kidney will give the Rabbi more time ministering at his Synagogue, than being ministered to by his machine.
