Need the English translation of the Hebrew on headstone. Max's Hebrew name is Mordachi Lazer which I think is written on the third line down. Especially need the rest of that line translated to ascertain the original name or his father's name. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

P.S. In some places the title Moreinu HaRav ("our teacher the Rabbi") was applied to every male even if he wasn't a Rabbi.

Our Dear Father

May He Rest in Mordechai Eliezer son of Binyamin Yaakov
3/13/2008 The hebrew name reads Mordechai Eliazer B'R' Benyamin Yakov. B'R' means "son of Mr", so his father's hebrew name was Benjamin Jacob.
3/15/2008 Hi Mark,
If you haven't received a response yet, the 3rd line says "Mordechai Eliezer son of Benjamin Ya'acov".

Hope this helps.

[something] mem-vav-heh: I don't know what this is. It could possibly be an abbreviation for Morenu ha Rav. Was he a rabbi?
