Here lies
(ilegible, behind vegetation) the renowned
Yaakov (Jacob)
11/30/2014 12:42 AM The date of death is probably to be found in the words on the curve, since the ligature symbol at the end implies the abbreviated date. However, not all words can be seen. All I can see is ...באה השמש ...

This has a crown, for keter Torah, implying someone who was very learned.

Peh-Nun, abbreviation for here is buried.

In the section below, is the word translated as the famous ones, with Yakov below that. Unable to see anything else.

Best,
Madeleine Isenberg
