Scores of Jewish volunteers are heading to help clean up homes and provide services in areas devastated by Hurricane Katrina. Students on a Chabad Lubavitch-organized trip are in New Orleans, cleaning homes, synagogues and schools. A dozen Jewish communities also are donating more than 500 menorahs and dreidels to area families, and the American Jewish Committee plans to donate $575,000 this week from its Hurricane Katrina Relief Fund to four institutions.
