Pomegranate Guild > What's New

The mission of the Pomegranate Guild of Judaic Needlework is to pass needlework traditions to other generations of women and men through the sharing of knowledge and techniques needed to create handcrafted items intended for both Jewish ritual and cultural use. We strive to do this in an atmosphere of camaraderie with others and our joy in being Jewish.
