Tucked away amongst houses and streets, Penzance Jewish Cemetery is one of Penzance’s hidden gems. The Georgian cemetery is regarded as one of the finest outside London. It contains over fifty headstones in almost perfect condition, with Hebrew and English inscriptions, and a complete Bet Toharh, or Cleaning House.
The custodian is happy to take small groups to visit the site and related workshops for schools can be arranged. Please contact the Education Officer at Penlee House initially to discuss a visit.
