Left side is very difficult to decipher, all I could see is "daughter of Moshe" & "month of sivan"

Sivan in the year
(Tov Lehodot" -- that requires explanation: Hebrew letters each have a numerical value. Adding up the values yields 468, so the year was 5468. Tov Lehodot means "it is good to praise (god)" from Psalm 94)
