The heart shaped dedication was possibly part of a Torah ark curtain.   A stylized crown flanked by two Stars of David, are set on top. A dedication is inscribed in Hebrew and Judeo Spanish (Ladino) in square Hebrew characters, which reads:

"ק"ק (קהל קדוש)/ בית יעקב/ הקדש/ אין מימוריה דיל דיפונטו הבחור/ שנפטר סמוך לחופתו עודנו באבו/ וסבל ייסורים קשים: הר' שמואל אברהם נחמה נ"ע (נוחו עדן)/ ויהי היום י"ט חשון התרצב/ תנצבה."

“(Dedicated to) the Beit Ya'acob Holy Congregation (see: Remarks: no. 2). A Dedication made in memory of the late young man, who past away close to his wedding day, still young, and suffered great torments: Rabbi Samuel Abraham Nehamah, May he rest in Eden. (Donated) in 'one day' 19th of Heshvan 5692 (30.10.1931), May his soul be bound in the bond of life."  

A wreath of two foliate stems, bound by a ribbon, frames the inscription.

20 Description

The heart shaped dedication was possibly part of a Torah ark curtain.   A stylized crown flanked by two Stars of David, are set on top. A dedication is inscribed in Hebrew and Judeo Spanish (Ladino) in square Hebrew characters, which reads:

"ק"ק (קהל קדוש)/ בית יעקב/ הקדש/ אין מימוריה דיל דיפונטו הבחור/ שנפטר סמוך לחופתו עודנו באבו/ וסבל ייסורים קשים: הר' שמואל אברהם נחמה נ"ע (נוחו עדן)/ ויהי היום י"ט חשון התרצב/ תנצבה."

“(Dedicated to) the Beit Ya'acob Holy Congregation (see: Remarks: no. 2). A Dedication made in memory of the late young man, who past away close to his wedding day, still young, and suffered great torments: Rabbi Samuel Abraham Nehamah, May he rest in Eden. (Donated) in 'one day' 19th of Heshvan 5692 (30.10.1931), May his soul be bound in the bond of life."  

A wreath of two foliate stems, bound by a ribbon, frames the inscription.
