When the Jewish cemetery on Mombacher Strasse could no longer be used, this cemetery was created - 2 January 1881. It has served as the main Jewish cemetery in Mainz since then and is located to the South of the Hauptfriedhof Mainz.

The Moorish style mourning hall, and gatehouse with adjacent rooms was built in 1880/1881 by the Mainz master Eduard Kreißig. They were extensively renovated in 2005/2006.
