Plot A:

A.1. – 1885-90 - The plot is located next to the western fence. Many graves are without tombstones, and many tombstones are broken. Shrubbery covers 50 % of the area. Along the fence there is a lot of litter. It is difficult to access the graves, for there are no paths.

A.2. – 1885-90 - The plot is located on a rise, next to the southern fence. It is hard to find complete graves. About 70 % of the area is covered with shrubbery. Along the fence there are stacks of tombstones piled one on top of the other. Many of the graves are covered with earth and litter.

A.3. – 1885-90 - A communal grave / tombstone. About 40 names appear in Latin letters (Probably graves that were moved when the road was built )

A.4. – 1885-90 - The plot is next to the western fence (the road). Most of it is empty with broken tombstones scattered around. A few graves still standing are from the beginning of the 1900’s.


Plot B:

B.1. – 1890-1900 - A badly affected plot. About 70 % of the plot is covered with shrubbery, damaging the graves. Many of the tombstones are covered by it or are broken. Some tombstone boxes are open. It is difficult to get to and identify the graves.

B.2. – 1890-1900 - On the hill slope many tombstones have fallen; some are half buried and scattered. It is difficult to make out a clear path through the graves.

B.3. – 1890-1920 - The plot is located in the area between the wide path and the hill by the fence that borders the road. The graves, dating 5650-90 in no apparent order, are in a relatively good condition. There are elegant tombstones, situated upright, with obelisques. It is easy to get there, through a clear path.

B.4. – Rabbi Haim Palaggi’s grave. One of the graves that were brought over from the old cemetery and put in between the existing graves. This is the reason why the grave is at right angles to all the rest.

B.5. – 1890-1900 - Along the path there are tombstones laid in no apparent order. In the southern side the years are clearer. The tombstones are crowded, though there is a clear pattern and the graves are easily accessed. Old tombstones brought in here are located in the remaining areas among the grave lines. Most of the graves are in good condition, though some are broken.

B.6. – 1890-1906 - The plot closest to the path. The graves are scattered in no apparent order of years. A few tombstones have been transferred to here. The graves are in relatively good condition.

B.7. – 1890-1906 - The plot is located between the road and the narrow path. Graves date back to many different years – some of the graves have been transferred, some are original (5670 and onwards). Two of the graves are the most ancient in the cemetery. The plot is easily accessible and in good condition. Some graves are tilted.

B.8. – 1898-1910 - The plot is located next to the entrance shed. Most tombstones have been transferred, some are original. The tombstones are in good condition and are easily accessible. About 50% of the plot consists of small tombstones, easily identifiable, in reasonable condition. There are many interesting tombstones.

B.9. – 1890-1900 - Tombstones that were transferred are situated among the original graves. The plot is very crowded and there are some thorn bushes. The graves are easily identifiable and in relatively good condition. Some tombstones are fallen or broken.

B.10. – 1910-1920 - The plot is located next to the eastern fence, and is rather easily accessed by a path along it. The path covers many graves. There are stacks of tombstones. It is difficult to identify the grave pattern. 30 % of the plot is covered with shrubbery – the graves there cannot be seen.

Part of the plot is an open area, easily accessed from the path and the deck (pergola) and easy to walk in. A few of the graves are intact; many tombstones are stacked together and many are ruined or buried.
