Stadtlengsfeld once had the largest Jewish religious community in the Grand Duchy of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach and was the seat of a Landesrabbinates. In the Jewish cemetery several land rabbis are laid to rest. The Jewish cemetery is a unique testimony to Jewish burial culture from the late Middle Ages to the 1940s. There are still 603 surviving tombs, which also tell of the social composition and the social position of the Jews in Stadtlengsfeld. From the Jewish cemetery you have a nice view over the whole place.
