The Hebrew looks like it says efrayim yehuda, and that explains the German Leib (which means lion, which applies commonly to Judah, based on Jacob’s blessing from genesis). 

if the date is 30 in Shevat (to correspond with the secular date) then the stone says 30 in Shevat (ל בשבט) in Hebrew which makes sense also.
