Yahrzeit Plaque

This is a photograph of a damaged Yartzheit plaque from Beth Israel Synagogue. This photograph was taken by Gary Lipman, a participant on the Jewish Community Center Association’s ‘Days of Caring and Sharing’ trip in January, 2007. The trip involved JCCA board members and executive directors who witnessed some of the destruction still present in New Orleans 16 months after the storm, visited Beth Israel, and cleaned a YWCA building ruined by Hurricane Katrina.
