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.
Accepting submissions for the 11th annual Keren Or (Ray of Light) contest
Rimon is honored to continue its management of the Keren Or (Ray of Light) creative arts contest for Minnesota Jewish teens. Students in grades 7-12 are invited to submit original poetry, prose, and photographs.
The deadline for submissions is Friday, February 6, 2015 at 5 p.m. To submit your work, click here.

Upcoming Artist Salon
Transcontinental Express: New Jewish American Fiction
March 1, 2015, 4 p.m.
Moscow on the Hill (371 Selby Ave., St. Paul)
The tidal wave of Jewish émigrés from the former Soviet Union has unleashed a new group of writers who use their adopted tongue to make sense of American immigrant realities. In co-sponsorship with the Twin Cities Jewish Book Festival, Rimon presents Marina Rubin and Boris Fishman, two of these rising writers, at Moscow on the Hill in St. Paul. Joining Marina and Boris in the discussion will be a contributing writer from the Jewish Daily Forward.
Call the Rimon office (952-381-3449) to make a reservation today.
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.
