Yeshiva University Deciphering Aramaic Tombstone Text

The New York Times published an an interesting article, "Chasing 5th-Century Clues From a Woman's Tombstone," on 13 December 2013.  Students in a Yeshiva University class are translating a 1,600 year old tombstone from what is now Jordan.

Thanks to Judi Langer-Surnamer Caplan for alerting us to this article via a post in the JewishGen Discussion Group.
