I've been warned against this name so many times. Curious how many victims there are.

Not that this is my personal belief but....
Quote from: proverb
Charity begins at home.
Thanks for sharing. Good food for thought this shabbas on these competing philosophies which both sound so good on their own...

This is where pikuach nefesh etc come into play. We have already gone way further than what belongs on this forum.
But now that pesky what if it's a goy recipient, is it still pekuach nefesh. Or is it more important to bury the jewish remains than save the gentile's life.

Hatzolah always responds, Jew or not, shabbos or not. So whatever was written is plain wrong.
1. AFAIK the only reason Pikuach Nefesh is Doche Shabbos is מוטב שיחלל שבת אחת כדי לשמור שבתות הרבה (loosely translated to You're better off desecrating one Shabbos so that many Shabbosos may be kept. Being Mechalel Shabbos for a Goy won't bring to more Shmiras Shabbos
Macholokes? So what's the truth.
2. That's not why we can accept organs from a Goy, if they're harvesting the organ anyway there's no reason to let it die or give it away
I know. But that's just one manifestation of kavod hames. I'm embarrassed by the underlying principle, not this one manifestation.

Phew
Be extension you should be embarrassed that kivrei akum arent m'tamei.
Correct.
Your embarrassment comes from lack of information.
Hopefully my Rabbi can give a logical explanation for these.

@Redbull3 if this makes you embarrassed to be Jewish, you've got many other Judaism issues...
define this

We dont pull plugs. Therefore, we cannot donate organs, other than kidneys and part of liver, with which a person can live without. By definition, the donor is dying when their organs are "harvested". But they are not dead. They dont use organs from dead people, AFAIK. 

Why is that something to be embarrassed about? We are on the lists just like anyone else on the donation list. If you tied donating to receiving then we wouldnt receive.
I am ok with the no donating and yes receiving concept.

My 2 issues right now from this thread were brought up tangentially:
1. pikuach nefesh doesn't apply to a goy (the hatzolah example) and
2. kavod hames doesn't apply to a goy

Great, so I just learned 2 things that make me embarrassed to be Jewish. Hopefully my Rabbi can give a logical explanation for these. Can we delete this thread. I'm going to crawl in a hole now.

Error for me.
+1 been getting "we'll be back shortly" message..

Nice so basically a free $10.

 what does this mean?
Payments received through Chase QuickPay with Zelle do not qualify.
  I guess that means you cant send it to another Chase account has to be a bank like td or another bank which you can send as a payment through.
No it means that you need to send, not receive.
