WORCESTER – Congregation Beth Israel, a Conservative synagogue in Worcester, announces that registration is now open for Rimon Religious School. The Rimon School seeks to bring Jewish learning alive with a hands-on, discovery-oriented experience that centers on the child, engages the family, and treasures the community.
“In the Jewish tradition, the ‘rimon’- Hebrew for pomegranate – is a symbol of goodness and a blossoming future. A pomegranate is said to contain 613 seeds, corresponding to the 613 commandments in the Torah,” Rabbi Aviva Fellman said. “The idea of Rimon is that our Jewish future will blossom from the seeds we plant together. And we will do so with an inspiring, child-centered, and innovative research approach to Jewish education.”
The school is open to students in kindergarten through grade 7, and will meet on Monday and Wednesday afternoons and Saturday mornings starting in September. Rimon will also feature a leadership program for 8th and 9th graders on Monday afternoons. The school is open to all Jewish families in Central Massachusetts.
Further information and registration forms can be found on the Beth Israel website at http://bethisraelworc.org/learn-with-us/rimon/ or by calling the office at (508) 756-6204.
