About Rimon

The mission of Rimon is to provide a framework of learning within the community which offers a broad and stimulating foundation in Jewish education, to foster Liberal Jewish identity, and to be a place of value, nurture, meaning and warmth for a child to grow and learn.

Rimon provides a Jewish education for children from the age of 3½ to 15, with Bar/Bat Mitzvah and Kabbalat Torah ceremonies towards the end of their studies. The curriculum is constantly updated to reflect current educational thinking and Liberal Jewish ideology, and upon graduation, most young people continue to help in the school in various ways such as becoming enthusiastic young assistants working alongside Rimon teachers.

Beyond studying for their Bar or Bat Mitzvahs, students are expected to continue their education to Kabbalat Torah at the age of 15, the pinnacle of religion schooling at the LJS. The KT course, which lasts for five academic terms, is led by our rabbis and teachers and involves an in-depth study of history and discussions of Jewish ethical questions with an emphasis on the Liberal Jewish viewpoint. Ultimately, students will learn to understand and to lead a service, with the educational year culminating in a service conducted completely by them.

Tiny Tots @ the LJS

Tiny Tots is for children aged 0-4 years and their parents, grandparents, or other family members, and takes place every Shabbat during Rimon term time at the LJS.

Our activities start at 11:15am – we have music, stories, creative arts, and Kiddush.

This is a chance to introduce your under-fours to the LJS and to meet other families.

 

We finish at 12:15 pm. At 12:20 pm you can join the community in the main service for the concluding song, or at 12:30 pm join the Kiddush in the Montefiore Hall, after the main service.

 

You do not have to be a member of the LJS to attend; just come along and join us.
