I need to figure out who this person is. The last name is Lorsch and I can read that up on the top left but I can't figure out his given name or his father's which is usually on a tombstone. Thank you!

4/21/2008 Hi,

Looks like HaYashish HaMefursam, Kvod HaRav Yokev LORSCH Za"L.

The well-known old man, his Honor the Rabbi Yokev LORSCH of Blessed Memory. I don't see a father's name.

He appears to have died on the 14th of Shvat, 5577 (January 30, 1817).


All the best,

Nathen Gabriel
