[Columns 1189-1190]

I will even gather you from the peoples, and assemble you out of the countries
where ye have scattered, and I will give you the Land of Israel
(Ezekiel 11)[1]

In eternal memory

Our dear father: Reb Yosef Baruch Lepak, of blessed memory

Our dear mother: Gittel, may peace be upon her

We will always keep your memory, dear mother. You were worthy of avoiding the unworthy hand of the murderers of six million Jews. However, no trace of your sacred grave remains at the Czyzewo cemetery, which was destroyed.

May their souls be bound up in the bonds of life!

  We will always remember the lives cut short of our father, of our brother Yehosha and his wife and children who perished in the years 1939-1943 with the entire Czyzewo Jewish community.

May God avenge their blood!


With our heads bent we express our grief and fury
Your son: Mordechai Lepak and family, New York.
Your daughters: Penina Lepak-Markowski and family, Tel Aviv
Tziona Lepak-Rozenblit and family, New York
