© Center for Jewish Art, Photographer: Radovan, Zev, 4.1994
The rectangular alms box is composed of a receptacle and a cover. The receptacle has a double stepped base leading into a narrow body with rounded shoulders. There is a dedicatory inscription in the center of the receptacle which reads in square filled letters: "בשנת/זרעו לכם לצדקה )הושע 01:21 (/לפ"ק )לפרט קטן(" "In the year:Sow to yourselves in righteousness (Hosea 10;12) [1838]". The narrower sides of the receptacle bear inscriptions as well which read: צד א': "הר"ר )הרב רבי( ישראל חיים ב"ה )בן הרב(יאקב ליב דייטש והר"ר )והרב רבי( וואלף ב"ה )בן הרב( נחום גלאזר" צד ב': "ע"י גבאים ה"ה הר"ר )הרב רבי(אברהם יצחק ב"ה )בן הרב(אהרן/ביהם הר"ר גומפל ב"ר )בן רב(ישראל פיסק" Side A " The Rabbi Rabbi Israel Haim son of the Rabbi Yakkov Leib Deutch and The Rabbi Rabbi Nahum Glazer". Side B "By the sextons ?? the Rabbi Rabbi Abraham Issac son of the Rabbi Aaron ? the Rabbi Rabbi Gumpel son of Rabbi Israel Pisk". The rectangular cover has a trapezoid unit in the center for the coins. The cover bears an additional inscription that reads: "זה הקופה/שייך לגמ"ח )לגמילות חסדים( דח"ק )דחברה קדישא(/ונתחדש" "This box belongs to the benevolant society of the burial society and was renewed". This is the beginning of the previous inscription on the center of the receptacle.
