We spent about an hour going through all the exhibits at the museum associated with the synagogue. We learned much about the Jewish population and their life and fate in Rhodes. The Sephardic synagogue was typical but lovely.More

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
