Since Katrina, Beth Israel Congregation has been holding their services in their own hall at Congregation Gates of Prayer in Metairie, Louisiana. The congregationís Torah scrolls were all ruined by Hurricane Katrina. Hayley Fields, a teenager from Century City Young Israel Congregation in Los Angeles, led a fundraising drive in her community to raise money to buy Beth Israel a new Torah. This photograph shows one community member with the new Torah.
