The sleepiness of Claremont during the college break is over, and students and faculty are back to business as usual. Business as usual on Fridays includes women at Scripps College selling Challah at Seal Court. The selling of this traditional Jewish bread (with a variety of delicious non-traditional flavors) started ten years ago at Scripps, with profits going to various charities. Over 50 chapters around the world have joined this venture which started here in Claremont.
You can check out the Facebook page, the website, and this short radio piece about Scripps College Challah for Hunger, but it’s even better if you go get your own loaf or two. Our Friday pleasure was Mexican Chocolate Chip. If you aren’t so adventurous, there’s always plain.
