International Jewish Cemetery Project - Malta

"The first known documented mention of a Jewish cemetery is in 1372, when King Fredrick III granted a piece of land at Tabia to the Universitate Judeorum, the Jewish Community, for use as a cemetery. It is certain that the site of the medieval Jewish cemetery was correctly identified at "Ghariexem", near Mtarfa, and named "Qbur il-Lhud", the Tombs of the Jews."
