Headstone 314


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here lies buried
O you afflicted, tossed with tempest* on the day of war
She died as a sacrificial offering, and unpitied **
All who know her rise lamenting
[The citrus changes in the spring to life]
Alas the woman
An endearing spirit, You seek out those falling from power ***
Let us rejoice for the purity of her hand and contrite heart
On the 14th day of the month of Tamuz 5701 (1941)
May her soul be bound in the bonds of life
 


* Isaih 54:11 O you afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted, behold, I will lay your stones with fair colors, and lay your foundations with sapphires. JPS, Tanakh: Holy Scriptures

** Hosea 1:6 And she conceived again, and bore a daughter. And God said to him, Call her name Unpitied, (Lo-Ruhamah); for I will no more have mercy upon the house of Israel; but I will completely take them away.

*** Psalms 10:10 The helpless collapse; they bow down, and fall into his power.
