About 30 years ago I attended a shiur in London. It appeared that organ
donations were acceptable to Jews provided that the diseased Jewish organ
was buried and rotted as a result of the burial. If the donated organ
was "Jewish" then it too had to undergo a proper burial upon the death of
the recipient. Any comments.
