Traditional Jewish Headstone Symbols

It is customary for Jewish headstones to include inscriptions of hebrew symbols or pictures. Usually these symbols tell a story or have a deep, spiritual meaning. Much like text inscription, a symbol on a Jewish headstone is a way to honor the memory of the deceased. Oftentimes, the symbol inscribed on a Jewish headstone will depict the deceased’s interests in life, family heritage, or the age at which they passed away.
