Beautiful synagogue and interesting museum. Unfortunately, we didn't get to give it the time it really deserved as we were with an impatient toddler!

We found this difficult to locate but it is well worth persevering. The synagogue is very beautiful but the museum is very worth a visit. It is very informative but also very sad to learn the fate of the Jewish people in Rhodes.

Everyone will find something that tugs at their heart when they walk into this historical building. This synagogue is almost all that's left of a thriving Jewish community before the Holocaust. Enjoy its special atmosphere, stroll the museum and read a few of the pieces...More

There were many more synagogues in Rhodes but of course we all know what happened to them we sat and contemplated the families that were here and are no more. All should visit and pray it never happens again.

Thank you for visiting us and for recommending to others to visit us! The only Synagogue remained in order to remind us the tragedy that once happened and should never happen again.

Great to see this synagogue and museum and very moving to meet with a holocaust survivor - it brings home the reality of what people suffered during that terrible time. Well worth a visit.

Thank you for visiting us and for your nice comments. Mr Sami's purpose in life is to talk to other people about his experience so, the younger people can learn what the school's don't teach and try not to repeat the same mistakes.

A beautiful synagogue that has been preserved for years. Part of the history of the Jewish community, most of which perished in the Holocaust. It is important to visit here, to remember and not to forget.
