I want to let you know how powerful my experience in New Orleans has been.

By Patti Vile
The ability to meet, visit and bear witness to the catastrophe that overcame New Orleans was visceral. I was both overwhelmed by the ruins of the once great city and inspired by the activities of the people we met.

Both the leaders in the Jewish community and the community-at-large are a testament to hope and determined effort.

I have brought attention of the mission to Rabbi Lowenstein and Sharon Morton at Am Shalom. We are eager to receive your lists, project opportunities, pictures and blogs so that we might consider how we might join the reconstruction effort.
Thank you for your work in organizing the mission and recruiting the full range of speakers and community leaders we were able to meet.
Warm Regards,
Patti Vile
Congregation Am Shalom, Glencoe, IL
