Re: help with Hebrew gravestone abbreviation – Het #translation


I respectfully disagree with your reading of the gravestone.
I think it IS a 'resh'(ר) and not a 'khet'(ח).  The added 'leg' to the 'resh' is, IMHO, just a streak on the gravestone or on the photograph.
Look at the other 'khets' on the gravestone.
The only way to be sure is to see and 'braille' the gravestone itself.
