HistoricalAccording 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.
