Emanuel has dressed up a simple serving bowl with cheerful red pomegranates. Pomegranates are one of the seven species of the land of Israel mentioned in the Bible. “For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, flowing forth in valleys and hills, and a land of wheat and barley, of vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive trees and honey.” Deuteronomy 8 7-8
The beautiful pomegranate with its ruby red seeds symbolizes beauty, love, fertility, and abundance. In Israel, we also liken the good deeds to the pomegranate – that we should do as many good deeds as the pomegranate has seeds!
This charming bowl adds a bright Israeli touch to your dining experience. You will enjoy using it both indoors and outside. The lightweight bamboo is appropriate for poolside lunch and dinners at home.
