This was the first time I’d been to a Synagogue and I’m certainly glad I took the time to. The main synagogue building itself is beautiful and adorned with a number of beautifully crafted religious objects and furniture.
Leading on from this is a thoroughly interesting museum which explains the history of the Synagogue on Rhodes as well as the stories of the familes and most aspects of their daily lives on the island. There was also concise information provided about a number of Jewish religious artefacts which I found to be interesting and informative.
Part of the exhibition detailed the Holocaust which was presented in a sensitive, touching and informative way, all in relation to the Jews of Rhodes and their incomprehensible experiences.
I would thoroughly recommend visiting this beautiful building to both admire it archatectually and to learn more of the Jewish culture both in general and in relation to the island.
