Historical According to our CK records, he was the cemetery’s first burial, taking place in 1857. So did he die in 1860 or in 1857? The 5th of Shevat 5620 was a Sunday while the 5th of Shevat 5617 was a Friday. If, however, he died after sundown on January 29, 1857, then the Hebrew notation that he died on Shabbat but in 5617 would be correct.
