JewishPress Logo

Nine organs donated by the family of a 16 year old Israeli athlete have saved the lives of 6 people, providing some comfort to a family heartbroken by the loss of their son.

Gilad Veturi, a student at Ilan Ramon High School in Hod Hasharon collapsed Thursday during sprinting practice and died two days later.

According to Israel Transplant, Venturi’s heart was donated by his family to a 56 year old man, his lungs were transplanted into two men aged 63 and 67, his liver was given to a 64 year old woman, a kidney and his pancreas were given to a 36 year old woman, and his other kidney went to a 24 year old woman.  Veturi’s corneas will be transplanted later.

  1. In keeping with my promise to Hashem that if Hashem would give my husband, 17 years my senior, long life, I would do the Daf Yomi with him. Fortunately I learned for several years with a rabbi who offered "modern" minded women who wanted to learn Talmud, a deal that if they attended Chumash classes, he would also teach Talmud. My husband wasn't given an opportunity to learn in his youth. After completing Shas twice, we are hoping for Hashem to allow us to complete the shas for the third time and see the coming of our Rightous Moshiach speedily in our days.
