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.

The Soul of Gershwin: The Musical Journey of an American Klezmer

Time: December 11, 2016 – 2 p.m.
Location: Park Square Theatre, St. Paul
Price: $30

Rimon has secured discounted tickets for a Sunday matinee performance of Park Square Theatre’s production of The Soul of Gershwin: The Musical Journey of an American Klezmer, created and written by Joseph Vass.

Brought back by popular demand, the play transports its audience to New York in the early 1900s, where a creative melding of different cultures created the “American Songbook.”  George Gershwin himself, joined by three outstanding singers and a fantastic band, reveals the folk songs, blues, jazz, Yiddish theater, cantorial chants, and opera that fused into songs like “I Got Rhythm” and “Embraceable You”.

The Rimon discounted price is $30 (a $10 savings). Tickets at this price are limited, so don’t procrastinate.
