Who We Are

Pomegranate Society members nurture, sustain, and plant the seeds for the next generation of Jewish leaders. Federation’s Pomegranates are critical to the future of our community.

Women giving $1,800-$4,999 are invited to join the Pomegranate Society and be recognized for their generous support of our community.

Did You Know?


The pomegranate is one of the seven fruits named in the Bible and is said to contain 613 seeds, one for each of the mitzvot or commandments found in the Torah.

The ancient symbol was carved in the entryways 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” or pomegranates.
