JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Help with a Hebrew tombstone #general


Lisa Grayson <lisa@...>
 

I have posted a photo on ViewMate of the gravestone of my great-grandfather's
brother Abraham Elias FINK (ne MARUCHES), buried outside Pittsburgh, PA, in 1919:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=16890.

The inscription consists of raised letters, making them somewhat difficult to
read... although my real problem is that I don't know the language well enough
to understand the full text.

I think I have the last two lines translated, but I'm looking for help with the
first four lines of Hebrew. I think they say something about AEF being
distinguished in Torah... our pious father... but I'm not sure I even have these
snippets right.

I would be grateful for a translation >from someone who reads Hebrew well.
Please reply privately or via ViewMate. Thank you.

Yours sincerely,
