Jewish Student Groups at the Claremont Colleges

Challah for Hunger

Challah for Hunger is a national organization centered around activism and social justice. With their weekly challah sales, Challah for Hunger raises money and awareness for the victims of the genocide in Sudan. They have sent more than $55,000 to relief organizations and thousands of letters to Washington, urging elected officials to take action. Challah for Hunger also works to inspire others, both on our campuses and around the world, to take a stand against genocide.

Jewish Mentor Program

The Jewish Mentor Program strives to foster a sense of community for all Jews, religious and secular, by providing a space for students explore their Jewish identity in whatever way they may choose. The program supports the diversity of experiences among Jews and hopes to serve as a medium for promoting dialogue on Jewish issues, both within the organization and beyond, through workshops, social events, and other programming. The program not only serves as a resource for students to meet other Jewish first-years and find community, but it also strives to affirm all aspects of mentees' transition to college and personal growth.
