    David – is this cemetery neglected – when did you snap these?

    There was a Rabbi Yehuda David Bernstein who was amongst the founders of RIETS (YU), on thier website they dont seem to know when Rabbi Bernstein passed away or anything too much about him ( see: )

    In addition Rabby YD Bernstein authored a Sefer named Hilchese Rabsa l’Shabata, where he disputes the Eruv in NYC, but there is again no biographical information there, such as; his fathers name etc.

    Can this be his gravesite, and perhaps they omitted his second name, or is there any sugestions?

    Parts of the BH Cemetery are messed up and overgrown.

    Never mind, I already found that Rabbi Yehuda David Bernstein passed away in 1930 in San Francisco, CA where he lived towards the end of his life.
