Headstone 188

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here lies
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
Koparpanig
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 Ezekiel 27:31-32

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.
