CHAYA daughter of Reb

Eliya Meir the Cohen

She passed away 9 Iyar 5705

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

-----------------------------------------------
'Reb' is an honorific; her father was not a rabbi. He was, however, a Cohen, member of the priestly tribe that traces back, son to father, to the first Cohen: Aaron, Moses' brother.

The first part of her father's Hebrew name, "Eliya", is a less common version of the name Eliyahu (Elijah). The second part of his name is pronounced MAY-eer.
