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.

Artists Salon Series



The first Artist Salon of the season with break dancer, Lisa Berman, her company BRKFST, and musician/moderator Adam Levy was amazing! We learned about moves, had illuminating conversations, and connected with different communities. Learn More.

Sunday, January 21, 2 p.m., Studio Z, St. Paul. Rising performance poet Talia Young joins Rabbi Emma Kippley-Ogman for a lively conversation on ways in which spoken word has become an effective vehicle for social change and on the role of new media in advancing activism.

Sunday, March 18, 2 p.m., Sabes JCC, Minneapolis. Visual artists Susan Weinberg and Steve Ozone explore the complexities of immigration and otherness through their painting, photography, and writing.

Sunday, April 29, 2 p.m., Traffic Zone Center for Visual Art, Minneapolis.
