14081 Interpretation

12/6/2009 This is an excerpt from a letter written in 1974 to my grandfather (Philip WEITZMAN) in New York from his cousin (Leah Naiman NAGID) in Israel. Thanks to Beate, who generously responded to my earlier ViewMate post, this section has been translated from Yiddish as "You’re asking why our cousin from Rusih/Ruzid(?) is not staying with us in kibbutz, they are living very(?) far from us in Dimuna..." I want to find out where or what "Rusih" refers to. To start, if it is a place, is it in Israel? Philip and Leah grew up in the Khotin/Zhvanets area of modern-day Ukraine, and I am told that on Leah's Israeli ID card, her place of birth was given as Reznovich. I am hoping that the "cousin from Rusih" might refer to a son or daughter of their aunt Surah Weitzman WOLF, whose descendants I know nothing about. Thank you for any assistance you can give.

14039 Tombstone

12/2/2009 I would like a Hebrew transcription and English translation. The letters have been highlighted with colored chalk (not by me or by my request - by a person unfamiliar with Hebrew). Most of the letters are clear, but not all.

One specific question:

The name of the deceased appears to be given as Yitzhak ben ha-rav [mem-hey] Eliyahu ha-levi. Is mem-hey in this context an abbreviation (perhaps for "morenu ha-rav")?

Note - the date of death is clear (29 Menachem Av, 5649).
