Jewish cemetery in Smalyavichy

According to Jewish canons, the land in the cemetery is considered holy. Each tombstone and the cemetery as a whole are inviolable as long as its location is known. In recent decades, the preserved part of the Jewish cemetery in Smalyavichy has been restored and is a local landmark. It is located today on Sovetskaya Street, on a flat piece of land about 300 meters long, enclosed by a wooden fence. The Jewish cemetery has about eight hundred graves, of which a little less than half are fenced and well maintained. Despite the fact that most of the territory is well-groomed, some areas require clearing of vegetation.
