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.

About Daniel Bergin
Daniel Bergin is an award-winning TPT producer and director, media educator, and independent filmmaker. His new film, "Cornerstones: A History of the Northside," reveals surprising stories of the Northside through the power of place. From the historic Sumner Branch Library to the former Emanuel Cohen Center (now Oak Park Center) to one of the last remaining commercial buildings from old Plymouth Avenue, "Cornerstones" explores the diverse history of the neighborhood through Northside buildings, spaces, and sites. The project is a co-production of the University of Minnesota and Twin Cities Public Television. Bergin's talk on June 16, 7 p.m., and preview of his film will be accompanied by tapas and dessert.
