Pearl's Hebrew name is unfamiliar to me -- it looks like "Perle Rode," but I'm not sure. Also, I wanted to confirm that I'm reading her father's name correctly: Yochanan Yitzhak.

There's no need to translate the Hebrew date or the abbreviation.

Thanks.

4/17/2008 Hello Paul,

My interpretation of the Hebrew/Yiddish is the same as yours. More than likely, the name on the tombstone is Yiddish rather than the more recognizable Hebrew names. If she was born in "the old country", more than likely she was named with the Yiddish.

Hope that this is helpful....Jo
