We should like to draw the attention of our visitors to the cemetery to the following points:

Gentlemen should cover their heads. A kippah may be borrowed at the entrance to the cemetery.

Please remember during your visit that each dead person is present in his/her grave, as it says in the Song of Solomon 5,2: “I sleep, but my heart waketh.” Thus everything that honours the dead is allowed, and everything that disturbs the rest of the dead is forbidden. Please do not step on the graves and do not sit on the gravestones, for these places must not be desecrated, and the graves do belong to those who are buried in them.
