~One of the enduring images of Hurricane Katrina for the Jewish community of New Orleans, and well beyond, was of a kipa-wearing rescue worker, in waist-high water, carrying one of seven Torahs out of the sanctuary of the century-old Orthodox congregation, Beth Israel. The Torahs did not make it; water-logged beyond repair, they ultimately were buried in the synagogue’s cemetery, along with 3,000 prayer books. But the congregation survived, and five years later is about to build a new home in the most unlikely of spots — on the grounds of nearby Reform temple Gates of Prayer.
