Headstone 234

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

This heap bears witness
A monument for a dear soul
Here lies buried a woman Sarah
Many of her days were [    ] sick
Woe, Alas! Zipporah the daughter of Rí Yosef
From the family [      ]
Who departed to the Heavens on the Holy Sabbath
The soul ascending on [Adar                  ]

May her soul be bound in the bonds of life
