We visited the shul after being on the island for 12 hours. Our cruise ship docked at rhodes
This shul is a monument to the Jews of Rhodes who lived on the island till they were captured by the Nazis in 1944 and transported to Auschwitz where the majority of this community perished. This is a beautiful place of worship. The museum celebrates and catalogues the life of the Jewish community on the island
Well worth the 4 euro entrance fee

Thank sophenberg

Thank you for your positive comment.
We are glad that you have enjoyed the visit. We hope that the Synagogue "Shalom" and the Jewish Museum of Rhodes will always be standing as a memorial to the 2500 Jews from Rhodes and Kos who perished in the concentration camps

This is a beautiful synagogue that is easy to visit. There is no admission charge. There is a small museum attached with some beautiful and some very tragic exhibits.

Thank you for visiting our Synagogue and Museum and for your nice comments.

I would just like to add that THERE IS an entrance fee for the Synagogue and the Museum, 4 euros per person.

Corresponded by email with this synagogue for their hours of operation as well as checked their webpage - and found out when this synagogue was open for visitors. Once arriving on Rhodes we called but no one answered the phone. We walked by but of course the doors were locked. The big excuse that we had from many other museums and attractions was that even if locations are posted as open, they still may not be because of staffing issues so early in the season.
