Think you are having problems reading a Hebrew tombstone? Students of
Professor Steven Fine at Yeshiva University are hard at work trying to fully
decipher the Aramaic inscription on a tombstone for a Jewish woman who was
buried in the ancient town of Zoar more than 1600 years ago according to an
article in the Metropolitan Section of the Sunday NY Times for Dec 15, 2013.
The article starts on the front page of the print edition and online at
