  1. Just wondering, did anyone consider that this might be someone’s mother, grandmother, close friend. May have been a tremendous Tzadekes. Is it really ok to publish something that seems to be making fun?

      • While I’m far from perfect myself with shmiras halashon, “Did anyone consider? July 29, 2019 at 4:03 pm” is absolutely right. Our diets may be “bland” without forbidden foods and our speech may be “bland” without forbidden lashon hora and ona’as devorim, but that doesn’t mean we may ignore halocha.

          • “and what halacha is violated? name one!”
            You truly don’t know? Even after loshon hora and ona’as devorim are explicitly spelled out? You are defending the indefensible.
            Perhaps learn some hilchos loshon hora and shmiras halashon. Also, see what the Chofetz Chaim says about loshon hora, even on one who’s deceased.

  2. I don’t know the details about this one, but I had a not frum cousin who passed away. The funeral was in Brooklyn so I went. The officiating rabbi was an old time reform / conservative clergyman. At the kail malei rachamim he said the name Boruch AISAV. After the service, I went over to the Rabbi and asked where did you get Aisav from? I made some phone calls and found out his second name was Issur. Imagine seeing a matzaiva with the name Boruch Aisav.

    • I understand this. The name Isser sounds like Esau. Probably the mohel was a European Jew who didn’t know English well. He wrote the name down for the parents in English as Esau.

      • This mistake wasn’t by the bris. it was by the levaya. My point was the reform rabbi didn’t think to question the family about the name.

  3. To: Did anyone consider?
    Well said & to the point. Is it not a Principle in Halacha? “Ein Omrim Bef.Nei Ha’mes. Elo Divorim Sh’B’mes”. I would venture to say, that this would apply following “Kevura” also.
    “Kalos Rosh” has no place in this this case; no matter how ‘unusual’ or ‘curious’.

  4. To: ah yid:
    Amusing; but, tragic.
    Shows the “Am’Aratzuz” of the Conservative / Reform, so called “Rabbis”. “Loi Oleinu”; G-D save us, & the “Yiden” that follow them, & ‘hang’ on theirs words, & worse, believe it to be “Toras Moshe”.

  6. The tombstone was ordered for Molly, no Hebrew name, delivery date was week of M-M. Misunderstanding and delivery date became engraved Hebrew name.

  7. This matzeiva is likely the grandmother of my roommate in Ner Yisrael in 1974, Eliyakum. He told me that when his great-grandmother was expecting his grandmother they went to their Rav (I don’t know who it was) with a concern. They had lost several children born previously in infancy or at a young age. The Rav advised them to name the baby after the sedrah of the birth.

  8. You mean the Parsah of her death.

    The Parsah of her birth (July 15th) was almost certainly Matos Masey.

    On another note if this isn’t Photoshopped then we are talking about a frum women who had a frum kevura.

    The way to tell is that reform and conservative Jews write z’l instead of TNTZBH”C on their tombstones

  9. Addendum to my previous comment: I forgot to mention that he told me that his grandmother’s name was Matos-Masei. We were roommates at the time of the petira of his grandmother during the year of ’74-’75. Case closed!
