Which is better, more correct, or necessary?
In references to dates on tombstones,
יום שבת קודש or יום שבת?
Thanks very much!
To me, saying יום שבת קודש denotes a more religious meaning, whereas just saying יום שבת seems secular, because in modern Hebrew יום שבת simply means "Saturday." I'd go with יום שבת קודש.
Of course, this is one hundred percent opinion. Since this website is not intended for questions on Hebrew grammar, I assume you are looking for people's personal opinions with explanations.
