Re: Headstone translation from Hebrew #translation


The name of the deceased is Devorah.

The name of her father is Yeshaya (Hebrew for Isaiah).  His name is abbreviated on the stone, because the last two letters of the name are one of the names of G-d, and there are those who avoid spelling it out.    There is a (faded) apostrophe at the end of the name, to indicate that it is abbreviated.

The 11th of Cheshvan, 5716, began at sunset on October 26th, 1955, and ended at sunset on the 27th.
