I am sure its a tombstone because it was on a grave and i was surrounded by them as i was in an old cemetery, and i believe jewish lived in nearby village long time ago.Welcome to Tnet.
Looks more like a stele than a gravestone as such. Although stelae can be grave-markers or funerary tributes, they also served as memorials and commemoratives (for battles or other important events), as boundary markers for property or city/town limits, and for a number of other purposes.
It's rather unhelpful that you have neither said where it is, nor what else is in the immediate vicinity.
Yes i am sure, there are many graves beside this one and its old cemetery in an old village.

Sorry for not being forthcoming, as you know i am new to these stuff.Well, that's a small step forward, but you're not exactly being very forthcoming for someone seeking help on identification.
- You haven't given the name of the village, or even what country it's in.
- 'Old' and 'long time ago' are very much open to interpretation. How old?
- Since there are 'many graves', do any of the headstones have dates to indicate how long the cemetery was in use?
- Is there an adjacent church/temple or whatever that can be dated?
- When was the village settled?
- Why did you single out this stone? Is it markedly unlike the others in the graveyard?
I don't see anything that stands out as Jewish symbolism typically seen on headstones. The arch-like carving at the right might perhaps be a 'gates of heaven' symbol.
