9/22/2010 5:55 PM I need help with the Hebrew inscriptions on the daughters' grave markers. They appear to be the same (alef-resh-vav-kaf-tav bet-tav ayin-mem-yud) for both daughters, perhaps something involving the words cure (or healing)/ daughter/ my people. The inscriptions are not what I would expect, if they represent names for the daughters, based on the father’s name, Moshe Gerson; i.e, for Lotta: something like Zlottie bat Moshe Gerson, and for Sarah: Sara bat Moshe Gerson. Can anyone suggest alternative interpretations of the daughters’ Hebrew inscriptions?

Note added 22 Sep 2010 @ 9:35 pm: It appears that the inscription, "arucat bat ami" is indeed not the name of the sisters but rather the motto of Hadassah: "The healing of the daughter of my people," adopted from the book of Jeremiah, 8:22. This observation makes sense, since Lotta Levensohn was one of the founding women of Hadassah.

No need to respond to this posting, but thanks for looking at it!

16480 Sharing Document

9/22/2010 5:52 PM Need information about Congregation – Temple Isaac (Oel Yitzchok) which has a section at Mt. Hebron Cemetery, Queens NY. Picture is of entrance to the section (Block 9, Reference 14, Section F). Office at Mt. Hebron had no information; the last burial was several years ago. I have tried phone books, internet etc. and it appears to no longer exist.
I have a relative buried in this section and would appreciate ANY information, or referal about Congregation – Temple Isaac / Oel Yitzchok.

9/22/2010 5:51 PM I'm looking for help translating this death record,which has both Yiddish and Lithuanian, please. I don't know whether the Yiddish and Lithuanian are saying the same thing or some information is in Lithuanian and different information is in Hebrew. The Hebrew appears below the Lithuanian. My request refers to the upper 1/3 page only ("Hoda Eidus"). Thank you. View the post with its 2 responses

16693 Tombstone

9/19/2010 4:18 PM What does the Hebrew tell us? Does it tell us where and when she was born? Does it tell her maiden name or parents' names? Does it tell her husband's Hebrew name or his American name?
She was my great, great grandmother, and I thank you deeply.
