Here lies buried
This heap bears witness
And this monument bears witness (Genesis 31:51)
He lived [in] this world *
Going on the good path
R. Ari Lev
The Son of R. Yaakov Kopel
And He departed on the 16th of the month of Adar
In the Year 5686 (1926)
 


* Alternative translation: This one to dwell in eternity for he went in the good path

Scriptural Reference:

Genesis 31:51: And Laban said to Jacob: Behold, this heap and this monument that I have set-forth between me and you: 52: This heap bears witness as does this monument that I shall not pass this heap to you and that you shall not pass this heap unto me to do, as is this monument, to do evil. 53. The God of Abraham and the God of Nahor, the God of their father, shall judge us, and Jacob swore on the fear of his father Isaac. 54 And Jacob offered an offering on the mountain and he called out to his brethren to eat bread and they ate bread and they lodged in the mountain.
