The two coronets represent the armiger’s hereditary priestly lineage and rabbinical ordination, both metaphorically referred to as crowns in the Talmud (corpus of ancient Jewish wisdom). Moreover, the coronets additionally represent the armiger’s marriage into the family of the legendary King Saul Wahl Katzenellenbogen who was “rex pro tempore” of Poland in 1587. The breastplate further symbolizes the armiger’s priestly status as a direct descendant of the biblical Aaron. Crest: The eagle head, a common Germanic symbol, denotes the armiger's historical ties to Austria from which his family hailed from prior to America.
