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.

Autumn 2015 Project Support Grants

Rimon is now accepting Project Support grant proposals for its autumn round of funding for arts-related projects. Grants will provide limited financial support of up to $3,000, but will not exceed 50 percent of the project’s budget. In addition to financial support, Rimon may provide accepted proposals with assistance by facilitating a community planning process, providing marketing or outreach support, and connecting artists and art presenters with the Jewish community.

For a project to be considered, it must meet Rimon’s mission of promoting and enhancing Jewish identity through arts and culture, supporting arts and artists who broadly explore Jewish themes, and assisting the greater Jewish community in developing a collaborative involvement with the arts. The deadline for submission is Friday, September 4 at 5 p.m. Central Time (this is not a postmark deadline). To download an application see Apply for a grant. For more information, please contact the Rimon office at 952-381-3449 or rimon@sabesjcc.org.

Artist Salons

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.

We’ve just wrapped up our 2014-2015 season of Artist Salons. Details for the 2015-2016 season will be published this summer.
