Pomegranates have been prominent symbols in Judaism for thousands of years, representing abundance and mitzvot. The combination of this ancient symbol with this minimalist design makes for a compelling modern piece. The durable pewter and solid design makes this an ideal outdoor mezuzah that will stand up to weathering. The traditional letter shin is incorporated into the pomegranate, displaying the plentiful seeds. Designed and handcrafted in New England, this is a wonderful gift for converts and newlyweds.
