Headstone B-34

Row 4, Col 1

Here lies buried
He walked as a man of complete faith
The purity of his acts were for good
Day and night were devoted
To Torah and to prayer.  His name
was known for praise and for glory
Eleazer the son of Judah
The Cohen, Shapira
He departed and was buried on the 6th day
Of the month of Av in the year 5674 (1914)
May his soul be bound in the bonds of life
