    The date on the tombstone reads “Oct. 30 1909” That should be “15 Cheshvan 5670 – ט”ו חשון תר”ע”.

    The tombstone reads Rev. N. L. Alpert does that mean he wasn’t a Rabbi in a synagogue?

    Shmuel,
    In thos years the title Rev. was commonly used for Rabbis as well as unofficial Rabbis, so this is not a clue on a persons Rabbinical status.

    YD Miller ,

    He may no have been an official rabbi, but the text of this stone seems o indicate that he taught torah and was a ztadik. So he’s is fit be listed here.

    I believe there were times that the shamus of the shul was known as the Rev. so as not to be confused with the Rav.

    Reverend back in the day was the title given to the spiritual leader of a congregation. It was the among the Reverends duties to oversee the congregation, officiate at weddings, circumcise newborns, supervise ritual slaughter, est.
