Re: help with Hebrew gravestone abbreviation – Het #translation

Madeleine Isenberg


I concur with all of the above and also when I was just as stumped, I appreciated the same explanation in the same paper. 

What I also have learned, is that a chaver had sufficient knowledge that in the event a rabbi could not be consulted on a specific issue, a chaver could also rend an opinion.  So, Yes, they were esteemed in a community.

Hope that helps.
