the woman PEHSHEH FAYGA

daughter of Reb Yehoshua

5 Tevet 5702

May her soul be bound up in the bond of life.

===============================================

'Reb' is an honorific; it does not mean rabbi.

The 5th of Tevet of the year 5702 began at sunset on December 24th, 1941, and ended at sunset on the 25th.

By the way: As I am writing this reply it happens to be the 5th of Tevet, which is her Jahrzeit (anniversary of the date of her death). This Hebrew date ends sunset today (Wednesday, Dec. 8th).
