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.
A pure, upright, and G-d-fearing person
He walked in the path of the virtuous ones
He was abundant in charity and positive commandments
He went to his final resting place with a good name
My heart bitterly and grieves roaringly *
Over the death of my father, my teacher
Avraham the son of R. Shlomo Zev
That he fell on the 22nd day of Kislev 5676 (1916)
May his soul be bound n the bonds of life
* Reference may be to
30. And shall cause their
voice to be heard against you, and shall cry bitterly, and
shall cast up dust upon their heads, they shall wallow
themselves in the ashes;
31. And they shall make themselves utterly bald for you, and
gird them with sackcloth, and they shall weep for you
with bitterness of soul and bitter wailing.
