Assigned to our community in 1991, partial parcelation of the cemetary has been completed in 2010 and since then, this part of the cemetary has been opened to service.
Haskoy is one of the oldest districts where Jews used to live and one of the older still-used Jewish cemeteries is located there. During the many centuries the Haskoy Cemetery was used, as a result of earthquakes as well as the destructive intrusions of private people and official authorities, the plot has been significantly reduced. Especially in 1972 when highways and the Golden Horn Bridge were being built, hundreds of tombstones had to be moved. As seen below, some were transferred in an orderly way whereas some had to be Halachically buried in collective plots.
One of the most popular cemeteries of our community, the Ulus Ashkenazi Cemetery has been open for burials since the 1900s like the Sephardi Cemetery.
