Located in the central Ukrainian region of Chernihiv, the Jewish community in Kozelets developed throughout the 18th and 19th centuries. There are still a few Jewish families living in the town. The site showed recent evidence of desecration, with refuse strewn across the area and encroachment from the agricultural land adjacent to the site.
