JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Stonegrave...words #general
In response to Mr. Ouziel question,
Can any one explain the meaning of three words I sawhere are my suggestions:
"beshem tov" - with good name, good reputation (considered more important
than all the money and other possessions, nobody takes with him to
the other world...)
"Khai leshona" - in Aramic: meaning "beze halashon", in these words.
Michtav Ha'iti - >from the inscription of time
I would also like to draw your attention to something I posted about
abbreviations and terms used to be inscribed on Jewish Tombstones in Poland,
at my web page:
I welcome any comments/corrections/additions...
I encountered nearly most of theses terms while deciphering
inscriptions found on remnants of matzevot >from the cemetery of Grodzisk
Mazowieczki and Gombin (Gabin).
The list was compiled >from various sources and kind Jewishgenners also helped
me a while ago when I made some inquiries regarding some terms I couldn't
There are still two abbreviations I ask the wise council of JewishGen
to advise what they stand for:
*Bet Ayin He Mem Khet
*Samech Gimel Lamed
