headstone

Here lies buried
Our teacher our Rabbi Moses Menachem
Rachtzah
the son of Shraga who went
to his eternal rest
He abandoned us so as to rest eternally on the 27t h of Kislev
In the year 5677 (1917) (7 years after his father)
May his soul be bound up in the bonds of life
Moses Mendel Rachtzah
