Headstone F-12

Row 1, Col 12

Magen David
Here lies buried
A man who honored(*1) our Rabbis
           Reuven
The son of Judah Lev
          Borski
Who departed with a good name on the
     13th of Shevat 5662 (1902)
May his soul be bound in the bonds of life

 

(*1) This assumes that the kuf is a kaf.  With a kuf, the only translation I could ascertain was from a wall which in this context makes little sense.  A kaf could to give honor.
