Harav YAAKOV ben Yosef
AHIRAM (Tiras) z"l

All his life, he worked to strengthen our hold
On Eretz Israel
And to fortify the walls of Torah

In its way, his faith crossed borders
And he always stuck to his goals
Without awe or fear

For many years he 
Regularly visited Maarat Hamachpela
To pray at sunrise

He was called to his Heavenly appointment
7 Tishrei 5768
May he lie in honor
Among the giants of Hevron

May his soul be bound in life
