Rebbetzin Bluma Rivkin of Chabad Lubavitch of Louisiana reports that the turnout for Shabbat services at her home on Saturday was a sizable crowd of 40. The Rohr Chabad Student Center at Tulane hosted a “mini-dinner” on Friday night on Tulane’s campus and had a crowd of 60 students turn out, according to Rivkin. Her son, Rabbi Yochanan Rivkin and daughter-in-law Sarah, run the student center, which has been without power since the passage of Hurricane Issac.
