He was a righteous and innocent man
Here lies
Yehudah son of Moshe Medels
Who went to his world (euphemism for “died”) 6 Iyar
In the year 5665 according to the short count
May his soul be bound in the bonds of life

It could also be 5685
6 Iyar 5665 corresponds to May 5, 1905
6 Iyar 5685 would be April 30, 1925
