Long Description:
The Jewish cemetery lies about 0.5 km west of the town. Its eastern part hides the oldest tombstones; however, the signs on them are illegible today. The tombstones with legible signs date from the 16th century, the baroque tombstones from the mid-eighteenth century and the pseudo-baroque ones from the mid-nineteenth century. Three tombstones resemble sarcophagi. The tombstone of the Rabbi Aaron Kornfeld, a yeshiva teacher who died on 27th October 1881, is also to be found here.
