In the two years since Katrina, the New Orleans Jewish community has transformed disaster into opportunity, the author asserts, and thus can serve as a model for post-disaster recovery. Made possible by the generous support from the American Jewish community and the increased sense of cohesion after Katrina, she explains, New Orleans lay and professional leadership are guiding the recovery of the community through a strategic planning process in which hundreds of community members have participated. She discusses the various phases of recovery and transformation.
