61-year-old Jew convicted of helping people

Levy RosenbaumA New York court sentenced Levy Rosenbaum to a two-and-a-half-year jail term for brokering paid kidney transplants. This is the first such sentence handed down in the United States, and among all the black market brokers they found a Jew to prosecute.

In fact, Rosenbaum saved the lives of people who wouldn’t have been able to receive kidneys any other way, and he paid fair market prices to donors in purely consensual transactions.

The conviction coincided with a Knesset hearing on the shortage of donors for kidney transplants—a shortage for which Rosenbaum offered a viable solution.
