About Reb Zalkin Naphtali Shugal (Sigele)


Nathan's right eye was poked so that he could not see and fire a rifle, therefore he would not be drafted to the war a 2nd time in Russia. Tombstone: Jo Mintz Seligman: Hello Kim,

After viewing the pictures of your grandparents on the tombstone, I thought that I would translate it for you in a more formal way, consistant with their level of observance.

Mother: Raiza Dina Bas/(daughter of) Reb Moshe died on the 7th day of the Hebrew month of Tevez (followed by the Hebrew year.

Father: Reb Zelkind Naftali Ben/(son of) Reb Avrohom died on the 2nd day of Shvat (followed by the Hebrew year).

You will notice that the word "Reb" (represented by the Hebrew letter Resh), which is inscribed on the tombstone, has been included. It is used as a title of honor preceding the single or double given name of a male, however it does not necessarily imply rabbi.

Being that they definitely appear to have been orthodox or observant, I wanted to include that for you, as that would show the respect and custom to which they would have been accustomed.....Jo
