Hebrew translation on headstone #translation

You did not ask for a translation of the stone on the right.  However, since someone did translate it, I want to add the fact that Hillel's name is preceded by an abbreviation for the phrase "our teacher, the rabbi".  This indicates that he had rabbinic ordination, not necessarily that he was the rabbi of a congregation.

Hi Peter,

I did a little searching and found some records that may be helpful.

It appears that Rosie (aka Rose/Rosy/Ray/Rachel Silber) was Hilel's second wife. His first wife, Bertha nee Weitz, was the mother of Jacob (1894-1974). The other children who appear with Hilel and Rosie on censuses -- Irving (1901-1969), Martin (1902-1995), Morris Joel (1904-1991), Mary Sara Glassman (1906-1998), Gussie Marcus (prob. 1910-1991) -- were Rosie's.

According to Rosy/Rachel Silber and Hilel/"Hilet" Wilner's Dec. 1900 marriage records, extracted on FamilySearch.org (there are two records), her parents were Jacob Silber and Malky/Male Grapes/Kraps.

I was hoping someone would be able to translate the Hebrew on the attached headstone for Rosie.  Family lore says that she and my father were "cousins", in fact second cousins, but my research has so far not come up with a connection.  I am trying to find a birth record for her in Galicia and it would be very helpful to see if the headstone would give me any help.

Many thanks
