Long Description:
Hrbitov byl založen ve druhé polovine 19. století, približne kolem roku 1863. Sloužil prevážne židovským náboženským obcím v nedalekých Praskolesích a ponekud vzdálenejších Horovicích. Pravidelne se zde pohrbívalo do druhé svetové války. Dochovalo se zde 94 náhrobku klasicistního a moderního typu. Nejstarší jsou z doby založení hrbitova, nejmladší z roku 1950. Hrobnický domek z pocátku 20. století byl zboren v 80. letech 20. století. Hrbitovní zed je cástecne dochována v puvodní podobe, cástecne je zborená a cástecne nove postavena.
