Your event in Rhodes

_MG_2953 v2Your Bar/Bat Mitzvah or wedding ceremony will be a “simcha”of a life time when you host your ceremony at the Kahal Kadosh Shalom Synagogue, the beautifully restored, oldest Synagogue in all of Greece.

In August 2018 we offer a new Bar/Bat Mitzvah program. With Rabbi Barbara Aiello as our visiting Rabbi, your family can host a modern Bar or Bat Mitzvah program. For details:


Our Synagogue can host these events and with a sitting area of 150 people and a balcony that can accommodate up to 30 people, the Kahal Shalom Synagogue is the ideal venue for your wedding or event. The spacious yard can accommodate your reception or even a standing buffet.

In addition if you require an Orthodox Ceremony, we can arrange a Rabbi to fly to Rhodes from Athens to provide the service , or you may also make your own arrangements.
