What does "B'Red" stand for? =A0I had thought that Michael was the son of Moshe,
and the grandson of Asher Zehleg
Hi Sharon,

I believe that the "d" should be instead read as a "b", and instead should read,
" Moshe B'Reb Asher Zehleg and Rebecca." That is an abbreviated form of writing,
Moshe the son of the esteemed Asher Zehleg....

All the best,
