Search out this ancient synagogue and museum to learn about the history and lives of the Rodian Jews, now depleted to only five families due to the murderous Nazis. Well presented with many familiar artefacts and explanatory storyboards. Highly recommended

In the middle of the old town, this is the remaining Synagogue and is well kept. Adjoining it is the Jewish history museum and gift shop.
