Headstone Name Search page, and then
clicking on the links on that page will bring you to a close-up
the corresponding headstone.
If possible, the
transcribed Hebrew lifted from the headstone and its English
translation are given below, plus any useful notes about the
translation or history of the writing.
Lies buried Isaac
Yosef may his memory be for
A sea of tears pours forth - woe alas orphans
His beauty glorified woe alas his grave is found here
His life has come to an end
But his spirit shall be found in the upper reaches
Their lamentations abundant; [meaning unclear]
He has departed in the year 5648 (1888) on the
10th day of the month of Shevat
May his soul be bound in the bounds life
