Headstone G-2

Row 1, Col 2

A marker for a dear soul
We, the sons of our father, the
       one brought to his eternal rest
       With bitterness we cry out
And the Community of Yurburg gives it voice
[

 

 

                                             ](*1)

Our teacher the R Yehudah the son of Josef
             Rabinowitz

 

 

(*1) There are seven lines of Hebrew.  Many of the letters are visible, but
because of the blurred images, it remains somewhat unreable. It is hoped
that this stone could be clean and then reimaged.  As indicated, the first
tthree lines appear significant, for it is not only the sons who are in mourning
but it appears to be the entire Yurburg Community.
