Re: Hebrew translation on headstone #translation


You did not ask for a translation of the stone on the right.  However, since someone did translate it, I want to add the fact that Hillel's name is preceded by an abbreviation for the phrase "our teacher, the rabbi".  This indicates that he had rabbinic ordination, not necessarily that he was the rabbi of a congregation.
