Matnat Chaim was founded in 2009. In that first year Rabbi Yeshayahu Heber, the founder of Matnat Chaim, found four donors. In the second year, he found seven. Today Matnat Chaim is up to nearly 600 donors – that’s 600 lives saved! Most of the donors are religious, but the recipients are a mix that reflects Israeli society. The heroes of this particular story (besides Heber) are two donors, both modern Orthodox. The recipients are both secular.
