I searched the JewishGen archives and found the question asked
before but not fully answered.
My father reports that his father's tombstone has my grandfather's
name followed by B'R Shemuel HaLevi (all in Hebrew, of course).
Just what is B'R an abbreviation for?
Is it an honorific or does it indicate that my ggf was a Rabbi?
I can give the exact Hebrew if desired but I thought this would
be enough. Especially given the amount of space needed to
write it out letter-by-letter.
Thanks for any help.
