Short history
After World War II, the decimated Jewish community was unable to maintain the cemetery. This led to neglect and decay of the grounds and tombstones.

To halt the process of decay, the Foundation for the Preservation of the Jewish Cemetery in The Hague was established in 1984. This foundation's first achievement was an extensive restoration in 1987 and 1988. The cemetery wall, the meter house, the caretaker's house, the cemetery entrance and 1,500 of the 2,860 tombstones were restored. Furthermore, all graves have been inventoried. The characteristic, monumental trees were also treated against decay.

Since 2005 the Foundation has enabled the rebuilding of a collapsed part of the 19th century wall and has prevented a large part of the wall from falling over by positioning steel support struts. The Foundation ensures yearly extensive mowing and tree maintenance to be carried out and endeavours to restore and repair gravestones, cemetery-wall and pre-burial house.
