This is part 2 of a 'Hebrew-German' postcard. The language is mostly German, written in Hebrew letters; there are some Hebrew words. I've figured out that the letter Ayin represents the letter 'e', that every German letter, even if un-pronounced, is represented (for example: 2 'Nun's are used for a double-n, the letter Hey represents a silent h, etc.). There are 1 or 2 names, which are always a challenge. See below for what I've been able to read. I only need transcription, not translation. Thanks!

besheym sugosi uveni yichyu vehineni achichem hane’eman helMenachem?"

I would say
"Ich gruesse Euch he[rtzlich], auch
besheym sugosi u-vanay yichyu "

Since it's "yichyu" [may they live, in plural] it has to be "banay" "my sons", [also possible "my children"]

rather than hey-ayin I think it reads fey-mem=vielmals
