I would like to ask a full translation of Hebrew inscription to English and I would appreciate to get the original Hebrew text also (because I try to collect every information about the Jewish community in Szentendre and I plan to make a multilingual webpage and an exhibition). Thank you.

It is Lasar Goldschmid's tombstone who died on 5th December 1885 when he was 73 years old according to the German text and his death record. (And this stone was made by Arnold Kohn from Budapest as it is written at the bottom.)
