We were lucky to visit Rhodes on a day when there was to be a wedding at the Kahal Shalom Synagogue - it was open and decorated for the festivities. The attached Jewish Museum is informative and sad: Rhodes once had a thriving Jewish population of 4000 before the Nazi decimation of World War II: now there are 37, and... More

We intended to visit this Synagogue two years ago but an injury made us miss it.

Small but perfectly formed.Delightful small intimate museum, free entry, with a large collection of old manuscripts- some translations in relation to the Jewish Inhabitants of Rhodes Town. Worth a visit to see the fantastic artwork on the manuscripts-oh yes and its air-conditioned so nice and cool in Summer.

This museum is well worth a visit giving lots of information about the Jews of Rhodes over a long period and in detail about the Second World War. There was an extremely pleasant and well informed guide who could give us some personal stories when we visited.

This Jewish Museum is so full of history. Being in this Museum will not only feel good, it will teach you so much. We really enjoyed looking at all the old beautiful things and reading about what everything was all about. Really a treat!

We were welcomed well and the synagogue and museum are both well worth a visit. An extremely well documented history of the Jewish community in Rhodes including the removal of so many of them to the death camps. However, there is more to it than that. It really does give an insight into the community over a long period of... More

When we arrived with friends and children, we were welcomed by Samuel who did his Bar Mitzvah in Auschwitz. Samuel explained us the history of the Rhodes community and his personal fate. We were all in tears. The small museum is nice and well presented. Thank you Samuel and long life to you.
