headstone

This inscription, and the one that follows (see Headstone No. A16) describe the tragic accident that caused these two young boys to die.

 

Here lies buried
The holy young boy
who was plucked off
While still in the spring-time (of his life)
That he drowned in the river
Shlomo Tzvi
The Son of R. Yehudah
Berkawar
He departed on the 28th of Tamuz 5688 (1928)
May his soul be bound up in the bonds of life
