The Bible describes Pomegranates depicted in the temple King Solomon built in Jerusalem and as one of the seven species Israel land was blessed with. Jewish tradition teaches that the pomegranate is a symbol for righteousness, because it is said to have 613 seeds, which corresponds with the 613 commanments (Mitzvot) of the Torah. The pomegranate is one of the few images which appear on ancient coins of Judea as a holy symbol. The Pomegranate symbolizes Fruitfulness, plentifulness, Beauty & Wisdom.
