Although not at all religiously inclined, I visited this synagogue twice during a 7 day stay in Rhodes. It is clean and beautifully maintained and a calm respite from the old town of Rhodes. The museum is also very interesting.

For travelers ready to embark on the cultural and historical journey of Rhodes town, this is a great starting point. It is on of the oldest Synagogues in Greece!

Hard to find but worth the effort. its not very big but is so informative of what happened to the jews of Rhodes during the war and also some of the history of Rhodes and surrounding Greek islands
We are not Jewish but still found it so interesting and were so glad we went.

Take a break from the endless shopping that Rhodes Old Town has to offer and enjoy a bit of historical significance.

This synagogue and the small, but extremely well-done attached museum are very much worth an hour.

We asked a shop owner how to find the street and she gave us directions without any hesitation. Yes....it is off one of the main shopping streets but there is a sign on the wall at the intersection. It is a short walk from the harbor-side (Thallasini) gate.

Apparently only 5 jewish families now lives in Rhodes and they had resettled form other parts of Greece. Before WWII there were about 1700 Jews in Rhodes. 150 survived the camps btu none returned. There is an impressive slated wall of names of thsoe who perished. The synagogue itself is well looked after (depending on donations). There is a small museum within the building. There was a class excursion while we were there. There is also a small gift shop.
