President Bush thanked the American Jewish community for aiding Hurricane Katrina victims. In a speech Wednesday marking the 20th anniversary of the Republican Jewish Coalition, Bush singled out the work of Jews, including Chabad of Tulane University and a synagogue in Baton Rouge. Jewish organizations thus far have raised $17 million to help Katrina victims, Bush said, which is believed to be 10 percent of all private funds raised for Katrina relief in the United States.
