Magen David
Here lies buried
Our dear father, Our Teacher Rav
Joseph the son of Shimon
Nachman the Cohen    Kaplan
who went to his eternal resting place
Forsaking us for eternal rest
He departed with a good name
On the 9th day of the month
of Shevat in the year 5678 (1918)
May his soul be bound in the bonds of life
