Beautifully restored synagogue in the less touristy part of the old town. The museum gives you a good insight into Jewish life in Rhodes.

Both a synagogue and museum, the displays inside detail a poignant history of the jewish community in Rhodes. Both fascinating and thought provoking, well worth a visit to learn from history.
