Hi, can someone please help me translate the Hebrew on this tombstone. I am especially interested in whether the birth year appears on it.

If anyone can please also translate the [I am assuming] Czech above the line that states that he died on August 12, 1916, that would be great too.

Kind Regards,
Dmitry Nikelshpur
