In Rimon, we seek to offer our children and their families connection and excitement for Jewish peoplehood, Jewish tradition, and Reform Jewish values. We strive to enable our children and families to understand the Jewish past as a way of being inspired and empowered to embrace Jewish life in the present. We empower our learners to live out Jewish values…tikkun olam (repairing the world), b’tzelem elohim (seeing others as being created in the image of God), and more! The philosophy of Rimon understands that learning is personal and learner-inspired. We urge all of our learners to explore Jewish tradition, Torah, Israel, and prayer in ways that are meaningful to them. We want all of our learners to be curious, inspired, and challenged by the power of our Reform Jewish understandings.
