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.

Curious to know how one family’s life can be one degree of separation from nearly every major social phenomenon in Jewish life during the last 100 years?

Rimon’s next Artist Salon features local rapper Yoni Reinharz and musician Tom Lieberman, who will serve as the afternoon’s moderator. Together, they will explore the capacity of a singer-songwriter to tell the larger stories of his culture through the intimate medium of music. For more information, contact 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.
