Gift of Linda Harris-Sicular and the Harris family
Id no. 1999.A.441, Greeting card, Hebrew, English
Leon W. Harris sent this postcard with Purim greetings to family while training in Ft. Deming, New Mexico. For most of his service, Mr. Harris acted as a lay-chaplain, organizing Jewish religious activities and prayer services.

The Jewish Welfare Board provided holiday supplies to Jewish soldiers, including greeting cards. The printed message is a quote from the Book of Esther, in which Esther pleads to the king of Persia for the lives of her people.
