To the main object: Jewish cemetery in Orhei (Orgeev), Moldova
According to the ESJF European Jewish Cemeteries Initiative, there are about 10,000-15,000 tombstones dating to the 18th century. The cemetery is operational. Some parts are well-maintained, and some are very overgrown. The local Jewish community takes care of the site. On the western side, the wall is broken, the territory is littered, and there are gas pipes that run through the cemetery’s territory. According to the local community of Orhei, this cemetery was used by Jewish communities from the surrounding areas, and each shtetl had its own plot.
