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.
Spring Grant – Deadline is Friday, March 22, 2019
The mission of Rimon is to promote and enhance Jewish identity through arts and culture, to support arts and artists who broadly explore Jewish themes, and to assist the greater Minnesota Jewish community in developing a collaborative involvement with the arts.
94 artists/institutions have received $182,000 since we began our Project Support Grants – will you be one of the lucky ones?
Apr. 7, 7 p.m. @ Bryant-Lake Bowl & Theater in Uptown
Respons-a! is a theatrical table talk where four conversationalists:
Katya Oicherman, Boris Oicherman, Pedram Baldari, and Nooshin Hakim Javadi,
seek out the questions each of us cares about in our professional and private personae.
It’s a game set at ease with food and drink. How much at ease?
We’ll find out in the process.
Bryant-Lake Bowl Theater is handling all reservations.
General admission $12 (36 and under $6)

Thank you to our audience who add so much rich content to the Artist Salon conversation.
In the creative and cozy paper studio, Aaron Silver spoke about getting in the “zen” zone and working extremely slowly and carefully. Moderator Freya Richman encouraged Aaron to explain his precise process using layers in PhotoShop, and guests were delighted to see stop-motion videos and close-up clips of him wielding the knife’s edge. The Salon concluded with the presentation of Aaron’s commissioned #papercut piece. He was given free artistic reign with the encouraged inspiration of #SocialJustice. He took a #Yiddish #prayer from Rosh Hashana asking to liberate all imprisoned. The SOLD OUT Cutting Out Injustice: Revolution in Jewish Papercuts Salon was a great success.
On a frigid Sunday afternoon in January, at the sunny Light Grey Art Lab in Minneapolis, Eli Libson, video game designer, cartoonist, and illustrator and artist Marty Harris joined in conversation about the rich history of Jewish illustrators and the use of guile as part of the cultural outsider’s toolkit at High-Brow/Low-Brow: An Illustrator Looks Askance at Art.
Who gets to decide what is art?
The Trail Forward, a work-in-progress by composer and multi-instrumentalist Lisa Gutkin, tells the story of growing up with 85 lefty, Jewish, outdoor-loving, garment worker grandparents.
Rabbi Arielle Lekach-Rosenberg joined Lisa in conversation about making change through collective action and the power of music to ignite it.
