Tomb of Yehudah ben Betera and Second Cemetery, Qamishlo (Qamishli), Syria

Syria

Summary

Tomb of Yehudah ben Betera near Qamishlo (Qamishli, القامشلي‎‎, Qamişlo, קמישלי), Syria.

Description

The synagogue has a hole in the roof and a hole in a side wall, presumably because people wanted to get in to pillage valuables. Following the Turkish destruction of the first cemetery in 1985, the area around the tomb was used as a cemetery.
