BERLIN – When Ilene Silverman reached out to members of her congregation at Temple Bat Yam for a kidney, Rachel White responded.
“She was a stranger to me and that’s how we met,” Silverman said. “Nobody could believe it.”
Since learning of her kidney disease two years ago, Silverman said she has been placed on multiple waiting lists at different hospitals.
Silverman, a Washington, D.C., native and part-time resident to the area, said she enlisted the help of friend Carole Eagle to place a letter in her temple’s bulletin.
White, a Salisbury resident, said she had received a letter from her temple in January with Silverman’s request.
