Two minor additional pieces of information:

The name "Ratner" (РАТНЕРЪ) in the second column from the left is generally the surname of the mohel who performed the circumcision;
the younger Itsko Itskovich Okun's mother's name was Sora-Bliuma

Of no specific importance is the fact that Okun (ОКУНЬ) is a species of fish, a perch or rockfish.
