Hebrew translation to English of Gravestone #translation


A note about the date of death:

Rather than being given in terms of month-date, it is given in terms of the holiday with which it coincided.

The holiday of "Hoshana Rabbah" is the 7th day of Sukkot (which is the holiday of "Booths" that occurs two weeks after Rosh Hashanah).  The precise Hebrew date is the 21st day of the month of Tishri.

Here is buried/
This man/
Was decent and upright/
He educated his children/
In a decent and good way/
His name was Moshe, son of Yitzchak of blessed memory/
He died on the day of Hoshana Rabbah/
in the year 5679./
May his soul be bound up in the bond of (eternal) life.

I would appreciate a line by line translation of my great grandfather’s grave stone from Hebrew to English. Thank you.
