According to ESJF European Jewish Cemeteries Initiative, the third Jewish cemetery in Odesa was established in 1905. According to the cemetery keeper, the oldest preserved gravestones date from 1903, and they may have been removed from the demolished cemetery in Odesa. The third Jewish cemetery in Odesa is considered as one of the largest Jewish cemeteries in Ukraine. The cemetery is surrounded by a brick fence of three metres height and guarded. There are many buildings on the cemetery site including a beit-tahara, cemetery office, an ohel and a number of sheds. There is a large memorial on the cemetery for victims of the 1905 pogrom, which was relocated here from the 2nd Jewish cemetery. There are approximately 50,000 gravestones.

Date of oldest tombstone: 1903 (possibly removed from Odessa's demolished Jewish cemetery)
