  Old Congregation Synagogue in Ioannina - Dedicatory wall plaque, 1874

© Center for Jewish Art, Photographer: Radovan, Zev, 2001

The inscription reads:

"נדבת קד(קדש) הגברת מ' (מרת) שרה אשת אברהם שלמה/נע (נוחו עדן) הקדישה בק"ק ישן ליראס טו?? אס נ... / חמשים בתנאי שבשבוע שחל פטירת/ בעלה יתנו ההפטרה להראות מקרוביי/ כלי פרעון ובו ביום הפטירה יפרעו דק"ק/ את המלמדים ייעשה ברך כנהוג על שם/ בעלה לאחד - אריכות ימים ושנים של מרת/ שרה יעשו כסדר בעלת ההפטרה ה אדר א/ כפי הראיה שנתנו לידי יחידי ?? נסי ויחידי הק"ק/ עם חותמיהם עד סוף כל הדורות והיה זה/  בחדש סיון משנת  מנשים באוהל תבורך לפ"ק (לפרט קטן; 1874)."

"A dedication of Ms. Sarah, wife of Abraham of blessed memory. (She) donated to the Old Holy congregation … fifty on condition that on her husband's commemoration day they would read the Haftarah to show that he paid his debt. And his imbursement will pay off, by a regular prayer for his soul, as customary, and another one for her long life, recited in a proper order by the teachers. As agreed with the members of the congregation and those who signed (this contract), till the end of days. And this was accepted on the month of Sivan the year: 'may she be blessed above women in the tent' (the year 1874)."

For an additional dedication of Ms. Sarah, wife of Abraham, see the dedication plaque from Beit Abraham Congregation in Ioannina.
