I'd appreciate a translation from Romanian to English of this inscription on the reverse side of of my great-uncle's gravestone. I realize the lighting makes some of the letters hard to see, but I'll be happy with anything that can be determined.

Of your soul

Translator's Note: This inscription is typical for Jewish graves, but it is unusual to write it in Romanian. Also, it is unusual to write such an inscription in the present tense, but...this is what it is..
