Hebrew Inscription

Jim Baker's book, A Guide to Historic Plymouth, says that the inscription in Hebrew, was inscribed here to recognize that Bradford was trying to teach himself to read Hebrew. [imagine doing that with no help in the 1600s!]

It says, "Jehovah is the help of my life".

Last year, I showed it some friends who came to visit who are Jewish and they were surprised to see it inscribed here so we took them on a stroll by the synagogue in downtown Plymouth.

It's nice to be able to remember everyone's religion since the Pilgrims wanted to make a new life here in the New World. Shouldn't we continue to strive for a better world?
