POMEGRANATE BREASTPLATE

8"diameter

This Breastplate is the shape of a
pomegranate, significant in Judaism.

The high priest's robe was trimmed with bells and pomegranates and the many seeds
in the pomegranate represent the 613 mitzvot in the torah.

Myrtle trims the edges, symbolic of the sweetness of torah study.

The Hebrew written is the "Priestly Blessing":

"May God bless you and keep you. May God shine His countenance upon you and be gracious to you. May God raise His countenance upon you and give you peace"

The breastplate is made of sterling silver with garnets, pearls and a silicon wafer.
