Re: Hebrew to English #translation
This epitaph is written in slightly poetic style to accommodate in acrostiche the name Chaim Yossef.
Ch With your parting we lost a good friend.
Y We are bitterly lamenting over your grave
Y All your days you were G-d fearing
M We so much feel suffering and broken
Y May your name and remembrance be blessed for ever.
O And you were a crown for the heads of your posterity.
S You supported the poor with charity.
F You were the glory of your whole family.
Chaym Yossef son of Arieh Yehuda
Passed away on the 3rd of Adar II 5695 = March 8th 1935.
