Our dear mother
Ester Rachel
Daughter of rabbi Usher Zelig

And there is her hebrew date of passing
11/25/2020 4:41 PM Hello Steven,

The following is a slightly different version of the previous translation of Rachel Scolnick's tombstone:

"Here lies our dear mother, Mrs. Ester Rochel, Bat/(daughter of) Reb Asher Zelig, who died on the 10th day of the Hebrew month of Elul (followed by the Hebrew year). May her soul be bound up in the bonds of life."

Bas = daughter of

Reb = a title of respect used preceding the given name of a Jewish male. It does NOT imply rabbi, as that would be inscribed in a different way.

Ester Rochel and Asher Zelig are each double given names. No surnames are inscribed in Hebrew on the tombstone.

Hope that this is helpful. Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving...Jo

our dear mother, Mrs.

ESTHER RACHEL

daughter of Reb Asher Zelig

she passed away the 10th of Elul 5699

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

================================================
'Reb' is an honorific; it does not mean rabbi.

The 10th of Elul, 5699, began at sunset on August 24th, 1939, and ended at sunset on the 25th.
