student with mask

This is a picture of a Hillel student wearing a protective mask while repairing a home that had been badly damaged by Hurricane Katrina. These students were part of a group of hundreds of college students from Hillels across the country that spent their spring breaks in Slidell and New Orleans, Louisiana, repairing homes damaged by Hurricane Katrina. A year and a half after the storm, there is still a tremendous amount of work to be done. This photograph was taken by Kevin Rachlin, a student from Ohio State University Hillel, in March, 2007.
