The first word is temple and the last is Jerusalem. The first word in the second line is Isaac. Sorry, that's all I got.

Yeah, it's pretty hard to make out... The last word in the second line is Ephraim. The third line seems to say "The year 75..." and the last line looks like "...to the building of Jerusalem" or alternatively "to the daughters of Jerusalem."

I'm guessing it's some kind of dedication.

At the bottom of the page, with a better picture here.

Provisional sanctuary and abode of the Testimony finished by Isaac Moheb, son to Efrain Waddawa, in the year seventy five. Oh God, listen and take haste to rebuild Jerusalem.
