Our Dear Mother

Mrs Peryl

the daughter of Mr. Tzvi Hersh Hacohen

She died on the 9th day of the Jewish Month of Cheshvan, in the 5684

(years since the creation of the world, which began at sunset Oct. 18, and ended at sunset Oct. 19, 1923)

Abbreviation of a quote from the Book of the Prophet (Samuel- Shmuel A, 25: 29)

May her soul be bound in the eternal bundle of life

(Tzvi is a biblical word meaning Deer or gazelle. Hersh is the Yiddish and German equivalent)  Her father was a Kohen meaning descended from Aaron Hacohen older brother to Moshe (Mozes)

Cohens had lofty status in the Holy Temple and until today have priority in being called up to the Torah reading in Synagogues.
