Re: Headstone translation from Hebrew #translation


My translation of the gravestone is as follows:

First line:  here lies (abbr.)

Second line: a woman young in days

Third line:  like a rose whose bud was awakened

Fourth line: Devorah the daughter of Ishai

Fifth line: who died on the 11th of Cheshvan 5716

Note: The 11th of Cheshvan 5716 corresponds to 27 Oct. 1955
