Welcome to the Jewish Museum of Rhodes

Here we will provide you with information regarding the historical exhibition which is located in the rooms formerly used as the women’s prayer rooms at the “Kahal Shalom” synagogue, which is now the Jewish Museum of Rhodes.

This web site is produced by the Rhodes Jewish Historical Foundation, which is a non-profit organization, founded by Aron Hasson, and established to preserve the unique history of the Jews of Rhodes.
