(in Hebrew Rimmon)
The pomegranate is fraught with meaning. At the feast of Rosh haShanah, the Jewish New Year (see the section on holidays), while eating the fruit we pray “May we be full of merits like the pomegranate (is full of seeds).” Hailed by the Torah as one of the seven most bountiful agriculture products of the Land of Israel, the pomegranate tree has its place in the MEIS Garden of Questions.
