Welcome to Rimon!
At Rimon we believe in inspiring children to learn and grow in their love of Jewish connections. Our entire education team is dedicated to nurturing our learners to develop a strong sense of community and friendship at Temple Sholom. Through innovative, student-centered curriculum, our learners investigate and explore all that is wonderful in our Jewish history, heritage, and practice. We encourage our learners to express their voices and help to make a difference in our world. Learning side by side with dynamic, interactive educators and madrichim (youth staff) our children grow and thrive through creative, fun, groundbreaking, educational and engagement opportunities!
Why do we call our education program Rimon and not Religious School? There are many reasons, but the most important reason is that “Religious School” does not accurately describe the Jewish education program at Temple Sholom. Rimon is a unique program where Kindergarten through 12th grade learners are encouraged to ask questions and investigate topics of interest to them through student-centered, Project-Based Learning.
Youth Education at Temple Sholom
Kindergarten – 12th Grade
In the spirit of student-centered, Project Based Learning our overall Driving Question is:
“How can Judaism guide and inspire us to learn, question, act, and be the best version of ourselves”?
We know that:
How we gather matters
Why we gather matters
How we speak matters
How we listen matters
At Rimon, our Learning Guides (educators) and learners collaborate to:
- foster deep, joyful community with one another
- discover and explore Jewish identity and heritage
- embrace and affirm each other’s individuality
- respect each and every person’s voice
- engage in innovative learning that ensures every learner a role, a contribution, and a voice
