Headstone translation in reverse #general


Stones may not be side by side. Reserving spaces or selling family plots is a
relatively modern practice. Some cemeteries even today have a woman's section
and a man's section, some placed people in order of their death, some don't seem
to make any sense at all.

The correct spelling of the names Ezekiel = Yechezkal and Rebecca = Rivka in Hebrew
can be found here: http://www.behindthename.com/nmc/bibl.php
