שירלי הלל גוטמן- סודות מטריקס הבריאה: "There are people whose names are encrypted in the text of the story of the Cave of Machpelah. One might ask why exactly their names are encrypted there? Why are they worthy of this privilege and what is the secret of the Cave of Machpelah?
If we examine the biblical story we will find the following details:
The Cave of Machpelah was bought by Abraham from Ephron the Hittite for 400 shekels of silver. This purchase was made in order to bury Sarah. Traditionally, the location of this cave is in Hebron and the Patriarchs are buried there – Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, as well as the Matriarchs – Sarah, Rebecca, and Lea."
