A pure, upright, and G-d-fearing man
Our teacher Our Rabbi Avraham Yitzchak
The son of Moshe Zalman
Who departed on the Holy Sabbath of
the Torah Parashah Shemot
The 21st Day of the Month of Tevet
In the Year 5675 (1915)
May his soul be bound in the bonds of eternal life
for God fearing man. The phraserefers
to Job 1:8:
And God said to Satan,
"You have set your heart against my servant Job. There is
none like him on the Earth. He is a pure, upright, and G-d
fearing man who has turned away from evil."
