    My Hebrew is a little shaky, can someone please translated the bottom half of the tombstone for me (after the part with the Ropshitzer Rav).

    Mr. Hoffman,
    The two lines are poetic verses from the Talmud pointing out how the angels in heaven (who were asking him to be up there) overcame the prayers of mankind, and his followers were left behind in sorrow.

    The last line points out the date and year of his passing.

    During the 1960s-1970s, Rav Elisha Kohn ztl was the Rov at the Zabne kloiz on Division Ave. Who preceded him as Rov in the kloiz if Rav Ungar was niftar in 1936?
