Section 4

Section 4 is a prominent part of the cemetery, containing the graves of the Kohanim, Levites, rabbis and other well-known and wealthy members of the Jewish community. A forged railing runs along its southern edge. Nearby, the old ceremonial hall used to serve as an entrance to the cemetery site. It was demolished in the interwar period, after the new ceremonial hall had been constructed. The section has 34 rows of grave sites. The graves in this section date back to different periods. Various types of gravestone are used here, from simple matzevot to opulent granite obelisks.
