     This isolated Orthodox Jewish cemetery location on a hillside is semi - suburban with a sign in Hungarian. Reached by turning directly off a public road, access is open to all with a broken fence and gate that does not lock. 20 to 100 limestone and sandstone gravestones are visible with 25% - 50% broken or toppled. Vegetation overgrowth in the cemetery is a constant problem, disturbing graves & stones. Water drainage at the cemetery is a seasonal problem. The flat shaped stones, finely smoothed and inscribed stones. and flat stones with carved relief decoration, some with iron decorations or lettering or with metal fences around graves have Hebrew, Yiddish, and Hungarian inscriptions.
     The present owner of the rarely visited cemetery property is unknown. The cemetery property is now used for Jewish cemetery use only. Properties adjacent to cemetery are residential. No care. No structures. Very serious threats are open access, no maintenance, and vegetation overgrowth.
