Headstone 171

 

 

 

 

 

 

A tree cries
A sea of tears descend from our eyes
Over the death of our father [tet]
[            ] A pure and upright man
[                     ] our teacher our Rabbi Mordechai the son of
Eleazer who departed on the 23rd of Adar
Year 5657 (1897) may his soul be bound in the bonds of life
