In 1999 Rimon published a hard-copy 91-page Minnesota Jewish Arts Directory. It featured profiles of hundreds of Minnesota-based Jewish artists and proved to be a game-changer in how the community understood the depth and talent of the regional Jewish arts scene.

The present moment requires a different tool – a free, online, searchable, interactive database that is easily updated but also maintained for a high standard of consistency and excellence. Thanks to a seed grant from the Minneapolis Jewish Federation and a full-time summer intern from the University of Chicago, Rimon has begun putting this dream into place – just in time for our 25th anniversary year.

If you’re a Minnesota Jewish artist in any artistic discipline, expect to hear from the Rimon office in 2020. If you believe that you or someone you know are not in Rimon’s contact list (you don’t receive e-mails from Rimon), let us know who you are at https://mnjewishartists.org/

Artists are essential workers in Minnesota Jewish culture. A comprehensive artist directory will raise the profile of our remarkable community of writers, playwrights, choreographers, composers, actors, musicians, dancers, filmmakers, architects, visual artists, photographers, and other arts workers.
