Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and Winter break! With the semester coming to an end and finals weeks approaching, we wish everyone good luck on finals and a restful winter break. For those celebrating Hanukkah and Christmas, enjoy the holidays safely! 

The Chaplains office has ended their weekly programs on Friday November 20th. With that, this is the final Religious Life Newsletter of the Fall 2020 semester. Thank you to everyone who has subscribed and attended religious life programs this year! The newsletter and Chaplains office events will kick back up at the start of the Spring 2021 semester! 

Though the Chaplains weekly programs ended, the Chaplains will still be available to meet virtually, provide spiritual counseling, and participate in special events through the end of the semester. Visit the Chaplains website to contact the Chaplains office as well as each individual Chaplain.

Learn more and get in contact with these groups here!

Muslim Student Association

The Claremont Colleges Muslim Students Association seeks to provide a support system and a sense of community for students of Muslim background and faith at the Claremont Colleges. Our events seek to highlight the rich cultural aspects of the various Islamic traditions from around the world, and to allow a safe space for Muslim students to express their faith, but also be themselves. We also aim to increase awareness about Islam and Muslims through interfaith activities. MSA organizes a variety of social, cultural, educational, religious and interfaith events. These include Iftars, Eid dinners, guest speakers, and field trips. Jumuah Prayer is held most Fridays.

Claremont Hillel

Hillel at the Claremont Colleges is a vibrant 7-C Jewish community organization where students socialize over delicious kosher food, volunteer in meaningful community service projects, and celebrate Shabbat and holidays in a warm, and nurturing environment. Through such programs as Candy Apple Making for Rosh Hashanah, our tzedek speakers, and our festive weekly Shabbat services and home cooked dinners, Hillel aims to build and nurture a pluralistic Jewish community, to provide opportunities for Jews on campus to meet one another and to explore the various meanings of Jewish identity. We welcome all students and hope you will join us! Hillel hosts a weekly Shabbat service and dinner for all students at the Claremont Colleges. The services are usually led by students. Services are followed by blessings over the challah and wine, and a kosher meal. Meals are usually home cooked in our kosher kitchen.
