More than just a beautiful piece of jewelry, the Pomegranate pin symbolizes a woman’s commitment to and compassion for the Jewish people.

The pomegranate is a symbol of a woman's commitment to the Jewish people, based on the 613 seeds in a pomegranate fruit which symbolize the Torah's 613 mitzvot, and a symbol of her financial commitment of at least $1,800 to the Campaign for Jewish Needs.


The Pomegranate pin was introduced in Lehigh Valley in 1981 by Sybil Baiman and Jeanette Eichenwald. A proven aspirational tool, a woman's pin shines a little brighter each time she increases her pledge. Each step up brings her closer to becoming a Lion of Judah and motivates her to stay with the Federation and complete that journey.


Women are eligible to receive a pin upon becoming a Pomegranate. Each year that a woman increases her minimum $1,800 pledge, she is entitled to add a new ruby “seed” to the pin, which is designed to be used for a period of 10 years.


*Pomegranate women donate between $1,800 and $4,999 to the Jewish Nevada Annual Campaign.*
