I have a tombstone >from Radomsko cemetery
Most of the text is straight forward, except
for the date of death.
Does anyone *know* if Taanit Esther (13 Adar)
can also be written as Esther Taanit? I know this
is strange, but these are the words I can read
on the stone,and they are followed by the year
5621 (1861). There are no other word that can
be a date.
It is not unusual to reverse the order in Jiddisch
and refer to the fast as "der Esster tayness"
in speech, but I do not recall such usage
on metzevot. Where was this?
I can email a JPG of the stone.
Thanks for any help
