The sandstone rough stones or boulders, finely smoothed and inscribed stones, or double stones have Hebrew inscriptions. Four family graves are walled but no gravestones remain. The municipality owns the barren property. Adjacent properties are agricultural. The area is smaller than it was due to a sandpit. Rarely, private visitors and local residents. Cemetery and structures were vandalized and destroyed during the WWII. Weather erosion is a moderate threat. Security, vegetation and vandalism are slight treats.
