Parksville, N.Y. In the chasidic world, matchmakers bring young men and women together. In the case of Rabbi Mendy and Rachel Traxler, the shadchan was Katrina. Mendy, 22, part of the Chabad-Lubavitch rescue-and-relief effort in Baton Rouge following the hurricane a year ago, traveled to Houston to join his parents, Chabad emissaries there, for the High Holy Days season. Rachel Kaufmann, also 22, was in Houston with her family, also Chabad shluchim, who left their home in New Orleans for temporary accommodations in Houston.
