purim party

This is a picture of University of Texas Hillel staff member Margo Sack dressed up for Purim while participating in one of Hillelís Alternative Break programs. Since Purim fell while students were in Mississippi with Hillelís Alternative Spring Break, a Purim celebration was held in the tent village where the group was staying. Margo was part of a group of hundreds of college students and staff members from Hillels across the country that spent their winter or spring breaks in Gulfport and Biloxi, Mississippi, repairing homes damaged by Hurricane Katrina. This photograph was taken by George Washington University staff member Rachael Kansas in March, 2006.
