I have no community details except that the famous Rabbi Mordechai of Nadvorna (founder of the Nadvorna Histadut) lived and was buried there. It is a mid-size town, not village but not a big city. I assume that there are some Jews living there. The cemetery is located in the backyard of a private house, surrounded with walls. The 250-350 tombstones date from the 19th century to 1975. The condition is good. In a big locked "ohel" is the grave of Rabbi Mordechai from Nadvorna, his son Rabbi Israel Yaakov from Khust and his wife and other 2 graves. As I saw many remains of candles and "Pitkaot", it seems that big groups (I assume of the Nadvorna Hassidim) visit the place regularly. I assume that they are supporting the caretaker family. The Hebrew inscribed tombstones are traditional. The place is about 300x100 meters. I visited 2 September, 1998. Source: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
