Old Jewish Cemetery Endingen & Lengnau Switzerland (par Swissrock)

About one half mile from Lengnau, in the direction of Endingen, is the old Jewish cemetery. It is recognized by a cluster of trees, on the right side of the road, and is surrounded by a stone wall. During the first years of settlement in Lengnau, the Jews were forbidden to bury their dead in Switzerland. They had to travel north to the Rhine River, and bury their dead on an island in the middle of the river, known as Juden Insle, Jews’ Island.” Endingen-Lengnau is close to the town of Baden in Switzerland.
