Welcome to Rimon: The Minnesota Jewish Arts Council. We put artists in the center of the Jewish community – not on the margins.

Rimon, an initiative of the Minneapolis Jewish Federation, promotes and enhances Jewish identity through arts and culture, supports arts and artists who broadly explore Jewish themes, and assists the greater Jewish community in developing a collaborative involvement with the arts.

Minneapolis poet/rapper/vocalist Yoni Reinharz presents excerpts from his work-in-progress, Family Portrait, in which he stirringly evokes his belief that his family’s life has been one degree of separation from nearly every major social phenomenon in Jewish life during the last 100 years. Tickets may be reserved here or by contacting the Rimon office at 952-381-3449.

The Artist Salon series is funded in part by a generous gift from Bruce Goodman and is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
