We, at the synagogue of Rhodes, try to perpetuate the memory of the Jews of Rhodes by offering walking guided 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 of Rhodes; to share the same tragic end of the six million Jews of Europe.
Tours inside the Synagogue
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.
Walking tours from June to October
We walk in the narrow streets where we read ancient plaques written in Hebrew, Italian and Djudeo Spanish, we visit sites of the ancient Jewish Quarter, speak of customs, life among the Jewish community until World War II, Shoah, Rhodes as part of Italy and the influence the Italian government on the Jewish community of Rhodes, education e.t.c…
The cost depends on the amount of people willing to take this walk.
This tour includes also the guided tour of the synagogue and the museum.
