In addition to serving apples and honey at Rosh Hashanah, it is also customary to serve or display pomegranates in some form. With their many seeds, pomegranates symbolize righteousness, because it is said to contain exactly 613 seeds, which corresponds with the 613 mitzvot (commandments) of the Torah. Here are 5 amazing ways you can include pomegranate seeds in your Rosh Hashanah menu.
