Rimon, a new religious school hosted by Congregation Beth Israel, is open to the Jewish community throughout Central Massachusetts. We seek to bring Jewish learning alive with a hands-on, discovery-oriented experience that centers on the child, engages the family and treasures the community. Our vision is for children to question, learn and grow, creating a vibrant Jewish identity and future arising from the love and knowledge of our rituals, history and tradition.
Registration is now open for classes starting on September 11, 2017.
- School is open to students in Kindergarten through Grade 7. Rimon will also feature a leadership program led by Rabbi Aviva Fellman for 8th and 9th graders on Mondays.
- Classes meet Monday and Wednesday afternoons from 4:15 – 6:15 p.m., and Saturday mornings.
- Opportunities for familiy activities and outings are scheduled for selected Sundays throughout the school year.
- Child-focused learning allows students to learn Hebrew, Jewish traditions, holidays and tefillah (prayer) at their own pace.
- Develop Hebrew skills, and cultivate the capacity and desire to learn Torah.
- Foster a connection to Israel.
- Inspire students to engage in the world guided by Jewish values.
- Create a Jewish environment supportive of each student’s learning style.
In Jewish tradition, the “rimon,” or pomegranate, is a symbol of goodness and a blossoming future. It is said to contain 613 seeds, corresponding to the 613 mitzvot in the Torah.
