Missing information in mazeva in Warsaw's cemetery #general #warsaw


BS'D I am looking for help with a mazeva of the Warsaw cemetery. I know the name's person buried there, but for some reason in the picture I have it is not possible to see the name of his father, neither the exactly date of his death. I wrote to the Jewish Museum in Warsaw but they did not answer, so maybe you can help me to find someone who can take a better picture of the mazeva or someone who has the record. The ubication of the grave is sector 37, row 2 number 27, and belongs to Mordechai Rotenberg Z'L

I had sent an email to  Przemysław Szpilman at the following email in 2016 beisolam@... with a similar questions. He was kind enough to research and respond.
If interested, there is an article about him on https://www.newsweek.pl/polska/przemyslaw-isroel-szpilman-straznik-zydowskiej-pamieci/zw2lpbs

I visited this cemetery in 2018. There is much restoration. But even with a map,  had a very difficult time locating metsube's. This article may also be of help

Despite not having all the tools I normally have (desktop in the shop) I think I can see quite a bit here.

At the top, on the curve is a Hebrew date, and to the best of my ability, it looks like 18 Adar2 5643 (= 27 March 1883).  The last letter of the year is a bit difficult to read, so I hope this is right.

A few rows down, I believe I see the name Shraga Aharon (maybe) Leib (maybe), who died at an old age.  
Further down, I am assuming the father's name here was Mordechai.

Perhaps these pieces of information help you, but it's the best I can do at this time.

The poem of praise forms an acrostic spelling the name Mordechai, and this is confirmed by the last line that is partially visible.

Unfortunately, the continuation of the line, where his father's name would be, is hidden behind the mound of soil at the bottom left.  Another photo might be helpful, but it would be best if the photographer were to reveal the remainder of the engraving.

Another person mentioned the name Shraga.  I see this name, too, but it seems to be referencing the brother of the deceased.
