“Must go see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Despite being a bit tricky to find, it's well worth the visit. In the Old City there are 2 squares. One has a fountain, the other a black pillar - a memorial to the 1600 holocaust victims from Rhodes' Jewish community. It's off the 2nd square.

There is a lovely Sephardi synagogue there and a museum about the history of the Jewish community on Rhodes. There is also an gentleman who tells has taken it upon himself to tell visitors his story and that of his family, memorializing this ancient community.

The synagogue and museum are very interesting and provide a good overview. Entry is free and the people there are very friendly and welcoming. Highly recommended.

“A very moving visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

History brought to life. A sad reminder of the fate of the once- thriving Jewish community of nearly 2000 which was sadly reduced today to just a few families by a brutal Nazi regime.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Jews and non-Jews alike will appreciate a stop at this free museum to be reminded of the atrocities that were perpetrated all over Europe just over half a century ago.

“Must see if in Rhodes town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

Beautiful old synagogue in Rhodes Town full of history and beauty. Small museum which gives the whole history of the Jews from Rhodes and the synagogue. Well worth the visit. Dress appropriately.
