  • The isolated rural (agricultural) cemetery on flat land at the crown of a hill is separate, but near other cemeteries with a sign or plaque in Ukrainian and Hebrew.  Access is open to all. Surrounded by a continuous masonry wall with a gate that does not lock, the cemetery has 20-100 gravestones visible with 1-20 in original location. Some have traces of paint on their surface and barely legible Hebrew inscriptions. Vegetation is a constant problem so high grass covers 90%. Many stones are completely hidden under it.  The site is used for Jewish cemetery and agriculture. Adjacent properties are residential.  Visitors arrive occasionally. Care has been clearing of vegetation and gate repair by Jews from abroad from 2013-2016. No vandalism occurred since that work. Grass has been cut in some places.  no structures.
