POMEGRANATE: A SYMBOL OF JUDAIC STRENGTH
One of the seven fruits named in the Bible, the rimon (pomegranate) is said to contain 613 seeds, one for each of the mitzvot (commandments) found in the Torah. This ancient symbol was carved in the entranceways of the earliest synagogues, woven into fabrics and hammered into silver and gold. The intricate covers for the handles of the Torah scrolls are called rimonim (pomegranates).
THE ADDED BENEFIT OF BEING A POMEGRANATE
Each woman making an $1,800 annual commitment may purchase the beautiful sterling silver pin. By wearing this symbol, we are reminded of the Jewish lives we have improved, rescued and renewed. But, even more, it reminds us of the work that is yet to be done.
