Our nationally recognized Rimon program brings Reform Judaism to life  for our Kindergarten through 6th grade children.  At Rimon our education team comes to know each child’s background experiences, likes, dislikes and learning styles.  It is from this starting point that our classroom lessons begin.

At Rimon our children are encouraged to use their voices and make their own choices.  Our curriculum is presented through project-based learning allowing each child to explore “big ideas” through individual choice.  Learning in this way allows a child to connect to their Judaism and make Judaism come alive. 

One of the most important goals of Rimon is not only to empower Jewish learners, but also to create community among our students and families.  Through cross-grade age groupings our children are able to make friends beyond their own grade.  Through choosing and participating in chugim (clubs) our children have even more opportunities to meet new friends.  And, of course, there are many opportunities for parents to come together and create long-lasting friendships.

 

 

Come visit us!  We invite you to open the doors of Reform Jewish learning for your family at Rimon!
