Jews resided in Tábor since second half of the16th century. The old Jewish cemetery was located on the foot of the old Christian Cemetery at the St. Philip's Church. It was founded in1634 and was often enlarged until 1893. The graves were destroyed during the occupation and removed by the Nazis, after WW II the ceremonial hall of the mortuary along with the apartment of the undertaker from 1893 and the rampart demolished, after the war the two divided historical Christian and Jewish cemeteries were merged as municipal park. Today on the former cemetery one can only notice two memorials for victims of the Holocaust (the previous was placed there in 1955, a new one placed in 2002) as well as an unfinished funerary plate in the lower portion of the cemetery. From the Kaddish Yehe Shelama Rabba (prayer for the dead): “Enoš kechacir jamav kecic hasade ken jacic...” (Our days are like grass; like flowers in a field we flourish. The wind passes by and we are no more, But Your Love endures forever).
