10" high x 3 1/2" diameter
Pomegranate shapes form the top of
these sterling silver rimmonim.
Inside are accents of garnets as pomegranate seeds,
symbolic of the 613 commandments in the Torah.
Along the edges of the sterling silver forming
the pomegranates are the Hebrew words:
"For with You is the Source of Life,
by Your Light do we see light".
Crowning and decorating the finials are branches of myrtle,
reminding us of the sweetness of Torah study.
Tambourines jingle under the pomegranates.
They are familiar in Judaism, a symbol of deliverance
from the legend of Miriam,
Moses' sister who led the Jews out of slavery
singing and dancing through the Red Sea.
