The Pomegranate society recognizes women who support the Federation’s Annual Community Campaign in a significant way. It stems from Jewish tradition where the pomegranate with 613 seeds in each fruit is also equal to the number of mitzvot (commandments) given to us by G-d.
The pomegranate is one of the oldest symbols found in Jewish art and ritual. This symbol reminds us of the lives already rescued and renewed by the commitments we have made.
Each of these women makes an annual donation of $1,800 to our Annual Campaign.
Society members may purchase the Pomegranate pin at an additional cost.
