Dear genners,
The name Itzel is a nickname to the Hebrew name Yitzchak and not as mr Josef Ash
write. This Biblical names Atsel or better Azel was never in use in the Jewish name
culture On the tomb is written the name Itzel in Hebrew as Alef Yud- Tzadik- Lamed
and not Alef- Tzadik Lamed.

Atsel (alef-tsadi-lamed) was a Jew >from the Benjamin tribe (Chronicles, I, 8, 37)
