Rimonim Logo: A Family Learning Community

Rimonim: A Family Learning Community at the Fort Tryon Jewish Center is a holistic model for youth and family education, which unifies our parent and staff collaboratively led educational experiences under one heading. (Rimonim is the Hebrew word for pomegranates, a traditional Jewish symbol for mitzvahs, learning, students, and new beginnings.)

In addition to weekly educational and enriching Tefillah / Prayer sessions, we serve the unique needs of families in our community through monthly experiential learning sessions for youth across all ages. Youth at FTJC celebrate holidays and Shabbat together, and learn essential themes of prayer, the Jewish calendar, and practicing mitzvot.

As a community, we aim to raise mentshy, knowledgeable, ethical children who love being Jewish, spending time together, and experiencing Judaism together in our welcoming traditional egalitarian context. We are a fast-growing community, full of couples and families with children of all ages. Our families come in all sizes, shapes, and colors – including LGBTQ families, interfaith families, single parent families, adoptive families, and multi-racial families. We also have congregants who span a wide range of backgrounds, exposure to Jewish learning, and forms of observance. We can’t wait to learn with you and your family this year.
