Jewish Cemetery

Židovský hřbitov

The Jewish cemetery was founded south-west of the town around 1400, on an elevation over the left bank of the Nežárka, once a part of the manorial garden used as a practice ground for falconers. It was enlarged in the 16th century, and in 1773 it was enclosed by a stone wall. Although Jews had lived in Jindřichův Hradec since the end of the 13th century, when Oldřich of Hradec obtained the right to settle eight Jewish families in the town from king Václav II, the oldest preserved tombstone in the original quadrate form dates back to 1638. Of the other forty stone-cutting works from the 17th and 18th century, the most interesting is a tombstone for a married couple in the shape of two Moses plates from 1729 to 1731, two tombstones with a symbol of blessing hands (clerical Kohen family) from 1769 and 1772, and of the newer ones a tombstone with the star of David from 1809 (Jakutil, son of Samuel Levita). The Jewish ghetto was formed by several houses in today’s Školní Street; on the corner with Kostlení street, a synagogue was established in the middle of 19th century (now a chapel of the Czechoslovak Hussite Church) with Gothic windows in the front and Romanesque frieze in the gable. (No. 188/I).
