Our dear mother is the first two words. Phonetically eemainu hayikara. The rest of her name and the dates of her life.


To combine the various replies about the date of death:

The Hebrew date was the 7th of Tevet, 5690.  This date began at sunset on January 6th, 1930, and ended at sunset on the 7th.

As to the pronunciation of the Hebrew for "our dear mother":   ee-MAY-nu ha-yeh-kah-RAH.
