Tombstones of Tluste/Tovste’s Jewish Cemetery
Page 1 of 5:   Selected tombstones from 1838/39 - 1902

Notes from Sara Mages about the transcription and translation process: A good portion of the Hebrew text on the tombstones is abbreviated. There are instances where only part of a word was inscribed on the stone, due to lack of space. The transliteraton reflects the original Hebrew grammar, as it was written. Note also that the term Reb is an honorific title, akin to "Herr" in German or "Mr" in English - it does not imply that the person was a Rabbi (the same is true for the expression "our teacher the rabbi"). However, one instance was found of a Ha'Rav [the Rabbi], and perhaps this person was indeed a Rabbi.
