Remarks

Line 1 of the introduction: בת המנוח התו’ מו”ה ברוך ל”ד “Tochter des verstorbenen Toragelehrten MORENU Baruch L(eides)d(orf)”.

MORENU literally means “u (nser) L (honorer), H (err)”. Only specially learned men received the MORENU title, Bernhard Wachstein describes it as a “synagogue doctoral title” (see Bernhard Wachstein, The inscriptions of the Old Jewish cemetery in Vienna, the first part of 1540 (?) - 1670, the second part of 1696 to 1783, Vienna 1912, part 2, p 15).
