8/16/2020 6:24 AM Seems to be their Hebrew names, and maybe their parents', but the spelling makes it a bit difficult to know exactly.

On the right side it says:
Father's Leibel
Meishe [could be the name Moshe (masculine) or Mashe (feminine)]

On the left side it says:
Riva [possibly Chava, but Rose would rather be used for Riva]
Yiders [could be Yehuda (masculine) or Yehudis (feminine)]
Freida's
