Re: Could you someone help me with translating a gravestone from Hebrew to English? #translation


A bitter eulogy we mourn, mother and 7 sons and 2 daughters, on the death of the upright husband and father Reb Yitzchak son of Reb Abraham Goldstein of blessed memory, died at the age of 47 years 10 days to month of Adar 1 5643. His good to the people of his faith will be remembered for his soul. May his soul be bound in the bonds of life in the garden of Eden, amen.

Reb is just a title like Mr and doesn't signify being a Rabbi. In leap years there are two months of Adar. The date corresponds to February 16th after sunset or the 17th 1883.
