Rimon: The Minnesota Jewish Arts Council

Welcome to Rimon. 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.

Joel Carter creates site-specific rock structures that are beautiful, fragile, and emotionally evocative. Growing out of his personal concern (as the child of a Holocaust survivor) and professional interest (as a palliative care physician) for the process of healing, he creates temporary rock structures that seek out new balances and seem to belong to the earth. Liba Zweigbaum Herman joins Joel for a Salon discussion of his art. Full Listen to the Rocks press release.

For more information, contact Rimon at rimon@sabesjcc.org or (952) 381-3449.

The Rimon Artist Salon Series is funded in part by a gift in memory of David Tychman; a 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.
