Today, on the area of ca 33 hectars there are graves and tombs of a quarter of a million people, among then many religious leaders and other people of great importance to the Jewish community.
The Cemetry is closed on Saturdays and on Jewish holidays; since it is in function, men who visit the area should cover their heads. Admission: 4 pln.
