Building Sacred Space Together 



It's hard to believe that in just two years Rimon has accomplished so much! 2014 was a tremendously productive and gratifying year. Rimon's events, classes and services were attended by over 300 people. Here is a sampling of the events and classes offered in 2014.

  • Ongoing multi-week classes in Torah Study, Jewish Mysticism, Yiddish Language, Jewish Spiritual Practice
  • Special classes taught by exceptional faculty including Rabbi Jill Hammer, Rabbi David Greenstein, Rabbi Edward Feld, Merle Feld, Larry Schwartz and Shelley Levine
  • Tu b'Shevat Seder, Purim Megillah Reading, Lag Ba'Omer Bonfire, Tisha B'Av Service
  • Monthly contemplative and musical Kabbalat Shabbat services co-led by Rabbi Shir Yaakov Feit and Rabba Kaya Stern-Kaufman
  • Jewish Meditation Group, Eco-Tefilah Prayer Hikes, Jewish Chant Circle
  • The Second Annual Interfaith  Forum on Death, Dying and the Afterlife
  • Neshama Carlebach in concert with the Glory to God Singers
In addition to providing all these wonderful opportunities to come together in community, to learn, sing, davven and celebrate, Rimon continues to provide the only Jewish Burial Society in South Berkshire County. The South Berkshire Community Hevra Kadisha cares for the needs of the deceased during the transitional time between death and burial. Our dedicated volunteers provide these services  to any Jewish family who requests them regardless of affiliation.


In 2015, your gift will support our ongoing classes, services and programs and help Rimon provide additional creative and engaging opportunities to deepen Jewish spiritual life including a new class in Talmud and our new Jewish Journey Group. Plans are also under way for collaborative programs with local synagogues and programs that strengthen our interfaith connections in the Berkshire community.


Our tradition teaches that the wilderness sanctuary (the mishkan) was built through the free-will contributions of all those whose hearts were moved to give. We invite you to join us in building sacred space in the Berkshires, enriching our community with the light of Torah, and deepening our shared commitment to creating a world founded on compassion and lovingkindness.  

Let Us Grow the Light Together!
