We , at the synagogue of Rhodes, try yo perpetuate the memory of the Jews of Rhodes by offering tours to keep alive the spirit of the ancient Jewish Quarter that came to an end when Nazi Germany occupied the island of Rhodes and took away the Jewish Community to share the same tragic end of the six million Jews of Europe.
We offer the following tours
Tour inside the Synagogue
We do tours inside the Synagogue and Museum daily, except Saturdays, from 14h30 to 15h30
Power Point Projection Tour
We show a power point projection of the sights of the ancient Jewish Quarter, followed by a guided tour of the Shalom Synagogue dating 1577 and the Jewish Museum.
We walk in the narrow street where we read ancient plaques written in Hebrew, Italian and Djudeo Spanish (Ladino), we visit sites of the ancient Jewish Quarter, speak of customs, life among the Jewish Community until the second world war, Shoah, Rhodes as part of Italy and influence the Italian government on the Jewish Community of Rhodes, education etc…
The cost depends of the amount of people willing to take this walk.
This tour includes also the guided tour of the Synagogue and the Museum.
*All the above types of tours start from the beginning of June until the end of October. The cost for each tour depends of the amount of people willing to take the tour.
