The emergence of this cemetery is related to the very emergence of Ruma as a market whose construction was intensified in 1744. The first Jews in Ruma was Simon Saks, who came here in 1737. The oldest monument in the Jewish cemetery is from in 1854 and cemetery has a total  number of 127 graves. Each of these tombs is a story in itself and disappearance of Jews from the region had led to the fact that the cemetery is now abandoned, ruined and overgrown with vegetation.
