Hebrew/Russian translation requested

Judywolk
 

I have attached the back of a photo which is half in Russian and half in Hebrew.  I would be most grateful for a translation.

Many thanks,

Judy Wolkovitch

Hi, Judy,
The top paragraph might be in Yiddish.
The bottom paragraph mentions the date 29 July, 1947. Possibly the top was written by an older person, and the bottom was written by a younger person who was educated in Russian.
(I don’t know either language.)

Hi Judy, Those Hebrew letters are actually Yiddish. You should change your message's headline, so Yiddish speakers will know they are asked to help.

As others have pointed out, the top is in Yiddish. Here's a translation.

Yiddish: My dear beloved brother Borekh and sister-in-law with your beloved children. To you as a remembrance from your sister Rosie and my little son Leybenyu.

Russian: To my dear ones, newly found brother, sister-in-law, and beloved children from sister Reyzl and son Leybele. Proskurov 29 July 1947.

Just a quick correction for the Russian translation, it's not "newly found", but more like "once-again found", which to me would imply that they lost touch, possibly during the war?
