Go see it. It is moving. We could only see it from outside the gate. It is a pilgrimage kind of place. Not visited a lot per a local.

We went to the Jewish cemetery and what we found were ancient gravestones all leaning in different directions. Also the grass hadn't been cut in a while probably due to the daily rain for the past 3 weeks so it looked very overgrown, unkempt and non inviting. I would have gone away very disappointed but we had an amazing English speaking tour guide to explain it to us.
This woman loves her city of Worms and is so passionate and knowledgeable about not only the sites in Worms but also the history itself. She explained that in the Jewish religion they are all buried facing east. Also it is not allowed to move or restore the gravestones. They must be left as they are and be allowed to go into the earth. Also some of the gravestones have little rocks placed on them with little pieces of paper containing prayers and wishes. Jewish visitors leave them there. Heike explained it was similar to the notes that the Jewish people put into the wailing wall in Jerusalem. The gravestones are so old. It is a very special place and I'm glad we visited.
