In 1875, the Jewish community bought a part of the land in Obukhovo district to organize a Jewish cemetery. It is built according to all the principles of Jewish funeral practices with a special house for a ritual cleaning made of stone. The cemetery has unusual and interesting monuments and it is a burial place for many famous and outstanding people: David Ginsburg (Jewish communal leader), Abraham Lubanov (the main rabbi of Leningrad), Samuil Polyakov (Russian railroad financier), Mark Antokolsky (sculptor) and many others.
