Friday, November 14, 1986 THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS
Jerusalem (JTA) — A rul-
ing by the Chief Rabbinate
Council last week cleared the
way for heart transplant
operations in Israel. It came
after weeks of discussion be-
tween the 12-man council and
a panel of physicians which
focussed on the definition of
death as applied to the heart
Although the rabbis had
long insisted that death oc-
curs only when the heart
stops beating, they have now
apparently. accepted the
medical definition that death
is signaled when the brain
ceases to function. They set
stringent conditions, however.
According to the rabbis, the
part of the brain that controls
breathing must be moribund
for 12 hours before the
donor's heart can be removed.
Doctor at Hadassah Med-
ical Center, which says it is
fully qualified and equipped
to perform heart transplants,
nevertheless hailed the Rab-
They said heart beat can be
maintained by artificial
means for 12 hours after
breathing cease, assuring
that a healthy, blood-nour-
ished heart will be available
for transplant. Another con-
dition requires consent of the
donor or next of kin and the
concurrence of a panel of doc-
tors which must include at
least one Orthodox physician.
Former Ashkenazic Chief
Rabbi Shlomo Goren may
have given some impetus to
the Rabbinate Council's deci-
sion when he wrote in an ar-
ticle that organ transplants
are not only halachically per-
missable but indeed a mitz-
vah because they can save
He suggested in his article
that cessation of breathing
caused by brain death was
the proper criteria and that
breathing need stop for a
minimum of only seven
minutes before the patient
can be declared dead.
