Its the oldest jewish cemetery with approximately 2.500 graves. The oldest gravestone is from 1058/059 and documents the first huge blooming of the jewish community in Worms. You have an impressive view on the dome from the younger part of the cemetery, it's called 'Buber-Blick'. Thanks to the synagogue foundation from 1032 and because it's an effective location of numerous rabbis, the municipality of Worms forms the 'SCHUM-Städte' together with the municipalities of Mainz and Speyer. 'Schum' is the hebrew composition of the firs letter of the three communities.
The cemetery is closed on jewish public holidays and on saturday.
Males are asked to come with something to cover their head.
