Re: Tombstone translation #translation


I will translate the top one first and have a closer look at the other later since it's less clear.

Here is buried
A woman of valor
The crown of her husband and splendor of her children
A mother to the poor and sister to the destitute
She went with modesty all her days
The days of her youth were greatly shortened
Mrs Yuta Sima daughter of Elazar
Died with a good name the day before Rosh Chodesh Shevat 5689
May her soul be bound in the bonds of life

The last digit of the year is slightly unclear, if you know the secular date you can use that to confirm. The date as I read it corresponds to either January 10th after sunset or the 11th, 1929.
