Headstone B-11

Row 1, Col 12

Magen David
Here lies buried

An upright man who went
And his hand worked(*1)  Our Teacher Our Rav
Gershon the son of Judah
Werbelovski
He went to his eternal resting place
On the 26th of Hesvhan in the year 5681 (1921)
May his soul be bound up in the bonds of life

 

(*1) Perhaps a euphemism meaning a hard worker, perhaps for the community
