Re: Use of "ben Avraham" on a headstone #general

Perhaps his father's formal Hebrew name was Abraham but he used Meier as his given name for example Abraham Meier Cohen.  As an aside I do not like the term "non-observant Jew" This man was religious enough that he has a Jewish grave.  Not being Orthodox or not being Kosher or not going to temple does not make one non-observant.   Rant over.
