headstone

Here lies buried

An excellent man, goodness in virtues
and ethics, a God-fearing man
Our teacher, our Rav Shneer Zalman
the son of Aaron Hosid who
departed with a good name and went
to his eternal rest, forsaking us
for his eternal resting place on the 9th of Kislev
In the year 5682 (1922)
May his soul be bound in the bonds of life.
