YAAKOV ARYEH

son of Reb Yitzchak Tzvi

he passed away the 6th of Shvat 5696

May his soul be bound up in the bond of life.

===========================================
(By the way, it is easy to misread his second name as Ari; however, if one looks closely, there is an apostrophe at the end of the name, indicating that the final letter has been omitted. The reason for doing this is because the last two letters of his name spell out one of the names of G-d, which some people try to avoid 'writing'.)
