42nd Annual Meeting November 18, 2014
The story of the CJE logo Numerous pomegranates and pomegranate seeds embellish the Tree of Life that is pictured on the cover of this report. This is highly appropriate because abstract representations of a pomegranate and its seeds are the foundation for the imagery of the CJE logo, pictured here. There are 613 seeds in a pomegranate, and these represent our 613 lifetime mitzvot or commandments. The pomegranate is of major significance in Jewish theology and history. The eighteen colorful seeds underscore the importance of the word Life (“chai”) in our name, the diversity of our staff and the diversity of our programs. In the secular world, pomegranates are considered one of the most nutritious of all fruits, carrying critical antioxidants that combat against disease and promote healthy aging. Our brand identity is a colorful and positive affirmation of aging and reflects our agency’s mission and values. As for the Tree of Life, it is one of the most prevalent symbols in Jewish tradition and interpretations vary on its exact symbolic meaning.
