Jewish -View on Heart Transfer

By RABBI SAMUEL FOX
(Copyright 1967, inv. Inc.)
Whatever may be said about the,
traditional Jewish view regarding
the recent he a r t transplant, it
should be clearly stated that no fi-
nal absolute view may be said to
have been fully formed yet. Studies
are still being made among Jewish
halakic scholars regarding the
transplanting of human organs
from the dead to the living. What
may be said with relative assur-
ance is that, in the case of heart
transplant, where the recipient is
regarded in a state of emergency-
i.e., a matter of life or death — Jew-
ish law would generally assume a
liberal viewpoint because of its
general tendency to permit (actual-

ly to require) the abrogation of
certain prohibitions when it comes
to a matter of saving a life.
These prohibitions include such
things as deriving any benefit from
the dead, desecrating the corpse
which should ideally be left fully
intact, and preventing the burial
of the corpse or any part of it. In
the case of the heart transpant,
Jewish law would definitely re-
quire that the rest of the corpse
and any part of the heart itself
which is not used should be buried
in the proper manner as soon as
possible.
There are a number of related
issues that raise interesting ques-
tions in Jewish law, such as the
question of when the donor is con-
sidered officially dead, and the re-
quirement of shiva of the next of
kin in the case of a deceased whose
corpse has not been fully buried.
Each case is generally to be judged
on its individual merit.
It is interesting to note that
there has been a tendency of many
rabbis to permit corneal trans-
plants in accordance with Jewish
law. although it should be stated
in all fairness that there have been
written opinions forbidding such
a procedure. Some of the opinions
rendered carry an explicit declara-
tion by their a uthors that the
opinion is relatively academic and
that one should seek the judgement
of a competent rabbi in each par-
ticular case for the practical appli-
cation of Jewish law to each in-
stance.
