The municipality owns property used only as a Jewish cemetery. Properties adjacent are residential. Occasionally, Jewish and non-Jewish private visitors stop. The cemetery was vandalized during World War II. The gate was repaired and local/municipal authorities cleaned stones and removed vegetation. Vegetation disturbing the graves is a constant problem, weather erosion a moderate threat, security and pollution a slight threat.
