About Esther Querido

Ester, Aboab's first wife, died in 1669. She was buried in a new part of the cemetery, which had been bought in 1663.

There was plenty of space in that part. Up till that year one was buried in order of entry, but after this expansion of the cemetery there was the possibility to reserve burial spots in advance. Chacham Aboab made use of this possibility and had the tomb of his wife covered with a double stone. On the right side the following text by Aboab was engraved:

I shall stow away Ester

Until the time comes 

That she shall return and

Her soul shall rejoice in happiness.

Because her end came in the night
