TUCSON - A local rabbi is going to New York to help a Jewish community struck by Hurricane Sandy.
Rabbi Yehuda Ceitlin leaves for the Sea Gate community in Brooklyn Tuesday. The neighborhood is 100 years old and mostly Jewish. He does not know how he will get from the airport to the town.
The storm hit the area hard, destroying dozens of homes.
He believes emotional and spiritual support is important to bring along with supplies.
"I think in times like this we see how strong the human nature is," Ceitlin said, "and how united we can be. And my hope is that we shouldn't wait for these times to show us how people can be working together."
Ceitlin's cousin leads the Jewish community in Sea Gate.
Anybody who wants to donate supplies or money should contact Chabad Tucson at 520-955-9680.
