Scholar in Residence

My name is Robert Berman and I am the founder and director of the Halachic Organ Donor Society.

Over the weekend, I usually deliver 3 lectures on different angles of organ donation (you can see them below). Please contact me if your shul is interested in having me as scholar in residence.

1. Friday Night: Paying for Organs is Illegal – Is it Immoral? A Fun Audience Debate.

2. Shabbat Morning: Organ Donation in Halacha and what is going on in Israel.

3. Mincha-Maariv: When is the moment of death? The Brain Death Controversy.
