According to ESJF European Jewish Cemeteries Initiative, the cemetery was most likely established in the 17th century. The old cemetery section, founded in the 17th century, is today adjacent to Drahomanova Street. In the late 18th century, a new section was opened, occupying a plot of land between Sahaydachnoho Street and Kotlyarevs’koho Street. The cemetery was badly damaged during WWII, when the Nazis used the gravestones to pave streets. In the 1960s, the cemetery was demolished. In 1999, the ohel of Shlomo Karliner was rebuilt, and a memorial was later constructed on the site. The cemetery site is overbuilt. There is a school on its western side, the Haharina public park on its central part and residental flats on its northern and southern parts. The cemetery was located on the site between what today is Kotlyarevskoho Street, Drahomanova Street and Sahaydachnoho Street.
