Cemetery Description: This cemetery has been active since 1981. It’s located right next to the Old Sephardic Cemetery. It was inaugurated by Rabbi Yosef Hayon, who also became the first Jew to buried there, after serving 27 years as rabbi of the Sephardic Community. The Jews buried here were in their majority Sephardic immigrants or children of those immigrants who are buried in the Old Sephardic Cemetery. The cemetery has 64 burials. However, there are 2 recent graves with no headstone yet. The two only records of the people buried in this cemetery were done in 1994 and 2000 by Jose Watnik Baron and published in the first and second edition of his book “NUESTRAS GENTES – Primera Generacion”. All the additional information added to these records that is not registered in the headstones themselves, was provided by the local Jewish researcher David Lukowiecki.
