Česky: Vídeň. Umělcův autoportrét stojí vpravo od sedícího rabína a dívá se ven. Nápis na Tóře říká: „Věnováno památce našeho pozdě oceněného učitele a rabína Moshe Gottlieba 1878.“ Jedná se o umělcův epitaf.
Všechny postavy zachycují lidi z Gottliebova mládí v Drohobyczi. Umělec sám se zde nachází třikrát: jako mladík stojící vpravo vedle Tóry, chlapec vlevo dole a dítě úplně vpravo. Jeho manželka je zde zachycena dvakrát: jako žena vlevo nahoře stojící s moflitební knihou a žena vpravo nahoře vedle své matky.
English: Painted in Vienna. The artist's self portrait is standing to the right of the seated rabbi, looking outwards. The inscription on the Torah scroll says "Donated in memory of our late honored teacher and rabbi Moshe Gottlieb of blessed memory 1878"; it is an epitaph for the artist.
All figures depict people from Gottlieb's early life in Drohobycz. The artist himself appears three times: as an adult wearing a pendant standing to the right of the Torah, as a child at lower left wearing the same pendant, and as a boy at the far right. The woman he courted, Laura Rosenfeld, appears twice: at the top left, standing and holding a closed prayer book, and second from the right on the top row, next to her mother. (Summarized from notes by the Tel Aviv Museum.)
Français : Œuvre peinte à Vienne. L'auto-portrait de l'artiste est debout à la droite du rabbin assis, regardant hors du tableau. L'inscription sur la Torah qu'il porte est "Don en mémoire de feu notre maître le rabbin Moshe Gottlieb d'auguste mémoire, 1878", un épitaphe de l'artiste.
Tous les portraits proviennent de la jeunesse de Gottlieb à Drohobycz. L'artiste lui-même est représenté trois fois : en adulte avec un pendentif à droite de la Torah, en enfant avec le même pendentif en bas à gauche, en jeune homme tout à droite. La femme qu'il courtisait, Laura Rosenfeld, apparaît deux fois : en haut à gauche tenant un livre de prières fermé, et deuxième en partant de la droite au second rang, à côté de sa mère.
