Thank you for visiting us and taking part in our services . It is important for us such days to fill our Synagogue with people. This gives us strength to continue trying to keep the doors open!

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.

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.
