The pomegranate is an important religious symbol in Judaism, and is one of the famous seven species of the Holy Land. In archaeological excavations near the Temple Mount, small bronze pomegranates were found that were used as the tips of the staffs that priests used in the temple. It is also a Jewish tradition that the pomegranate represents the Torah and has 613 seeds inside to represent the 613 commandments in the Pentateuch.
