“Donating one of my kidneys to a stranger was a good decision, but the life-saving work Renewal continuously does, in facilitating kidney donations is incredible. Supporting Renewal is the equivalent of saving lives.” 

Rabbi Dr.
David Shabtai

“This decision was extremely personal and a long time in the making. I was so inspired by the kindness of other donors, that I truly felt compelled to do it. It was something I just couldn’t run away from and it has been the most humbling and awe inspiring experience of my life. I have been welcomed with open arms into a club of the most wonderful people I’ve ever encountered.”

"One powerful part of my decision to donate is that it was inspired and guided by so many people: my wife, children, parents, other family members, friends, local rabbis, community members, Renewal, strangers I heard and read about and many many more."

“I feel like I won the lottery. This has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life”
