Chief Rabbi of Haifa

Rabbi Sha’ar Yashuv Cohen
Chief Rabbi of Haifa[55 seconds]

TRANSCRIPTION OF VIDEO

(Reading from a card)
Written here is:

Rabbi Sha’ar Yashuv Cohen agreed to donate all my organs for transplant; not for research; only after the option checked below:

Irreversible cessation of autonomous breathing which is confirmed by a brain-stem death;

I understand this option allows full recovery of all organs.
This is the position of the Chief Rabbinate of Israel, which I’m sure you know.

And my donation is conditional on approval from a rabbi from the Chief Rabbinate of Israel that is designated by my family.

All medical procedures must be done with utmost care, respect and minimal damage to the cadaver.
