              The pomegranate is frequently mentioned in the Torah, they were the fruits brought to Moses to demonstrate the fertility of the promised land. According to texts in the Torah the garments worn by the Hebrew high priests were embroidered with pomegranates on the hem. Pomegranates are one of the Seven Species (Shivat HaMinim) of original fruits and grains named in the Torah when describing Israel. It is said each pomegranate has 613 arils inside, representing all the mitzvot (commandments) in the Torah.
