Sarah, daughter of Mr Shalom
Died this 6th of Tevet, 5735
May her soul be bound up for life eternal.

The tombstone is inscribed as follows: "Here lies Sarah Bas/(daughter of) Reb Shalom......."

The word "Reb" before the given name of Shalom is used as an honorific title. It does NOT imply rabbi. Some people translate it as Mr., however there is no mention of a surname in Hebrew.....Jo
