  Jewish cemetery in Leova (Leovo), Moldova

© Center for Jewish Art, Photographer: Khaimovich, Boris, 1994

The report "Jewish Historic Monuments and Sites in Moldova" published by The United States Commission for the Preservation of America's Heritage Abroad in 2010 states:

"The 1,500 square meter area of the Jewish cemetery in Leova is surrounded by a fence with a gate. There are more than 1,000 extant gravestones; the oldest from the 17th century. More than half of the stones are broken or toppled and vegetation overgrowth prevents easy access. There is no caretaker and the cemetery is rarely visited."
