    This is basically what the matzeiva reads

    ציון לנפש חיה
    פ”נ
    נזר ראשינו אבינו היקר
    ר’ שכנא בר יצחק זצ”ל
    נולד ביום ז’ כסליו
    שנת תקע”ו בעיר
    לובאווע במדינת פוילען
    נשמתו הטהורה
    (it might be that there’s a word missing here)
    I couldn’t read 2 words on this line before the word פתאום
    בבית התפלה אור ליום
    ט’ ניסן תרמ”ז
    תנצב”ה

    Now Benhurachmon here http://ivelt.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=385708#p385708 did a better job.

    נזר ראשינו אבינו היקר
    ר’ שכנא ב”ר יצחק
    זצ”ל נולד ביום ז’ כסליו
    שנת תקע”ג בעיר
    לאבאווע במדינת פולין
    ונשמתו הטהורה
    שבה למרום פתאום
    בבית התפלה אור ליום
    ט’ ניסן תרמ”ז
    ת.נ.צ.ב.ה.

    The new Matzeva is totally unreadable and a whole big mistake.

    Here is what I transcribed from the old Matzeva:
    ציון לנפש חיה
    פ”נ
    נזר ראשינו אבינו היקר
    ר’ שכנא ב”ר יצחק
    זצ”ל נולד ביום ז’ כסליו
    שנת תקע”ג בעיר
    לאבאווע במדינת פולין
    ונשמתו הטהורה
    שבה למרום פתאום
    בבית התפלה אור ליום
    ט’ ניסן תרמ”ז
    ת.נ.צ.ב.ה.

    Sorry for the double post, I had this page open and didn’t refreshed to see the new comments

    Is this new marker for real…? Where did you get this picture from? it doesn’t add up at all. Talk about Noach with 7 mistakes…

  • 9 YD Miller // Jul 13, 2012 at 10:54 am

    Looks like the marker was corrected already, see here:

    My husband is Theodore Kushner and Reb
    S Isaccs was his great grandfather and his
    Grandmother was one of his 18 children. We would like to hear from family members. we
    Live in Lakewood,New Jersey an orthodox
    Community. Please respond! Thanks!

    As you can see, both matzevos have been corrected. There had been a well-meant but defective effort to restore the markers, but now they are better than new and hopefully will be readable for a few more centuries.

    The new painting made the
    ז כסלו
    To
    ל כסלו
    (There was no Lamed Kislev that year)

    Looks as if we are settled with this now. Thanks for your interest.

    Dan / Nancy… was Rav Shachna the paternal grandfather of Moses Isaacs, SIL of Rabbi Dr. Hillel Klein?
