Maitland's Jewish Connections

The strength and prosperity of the Jewish community in mid nineteenth century Maitland was reflected in the early establishment of the Maitland Jewish Cemetery. The local Jewish community had religious traditions quite different from the Christian practices that dominated colonial Maitland at the time, placing importance on observing the Sabbath and other Jewish holy days.

The Maitland Jewish Cemetery has been the focus of an intensive conservation program involving meticulous monumental research and restoration. This open day welcomes visitors to learn more about our city's Jewish connections and the state significant cemetery, considered to be the most intact dedicated Jewish cemetery in New South Wales.

Please note that street parking is available in Louth Park Road.
