Located at ul. Podwale in Chrzanów, the Jewish cemetery comes from the mid-18th century. There are about 1,500 macebas there, the oldest of which comes from 1802. In the northern ohel, the disciple of Elimelech of Leżajsk, Shlomo Bochner who died in 1828, is buried. In the southern ohel, the representatives of the Halberstam dynasty are buried. Normally, the cemetery is closed. Visiting combined with guiding round is possible after prior agreement with the Museum in Chrzanów.
