Rhodes Island

Written by Tim Ross
What an incredible place. Rhodes offers almost any kind of holiday you could want. If you want peace and quiet, youíll find it on Rhodes. If you want activities and night-life, Rhodes has got it. If you want to explore history and culture, that is there too. The island is clean, the locals are very warm and friendly to tourists. English is spoken everywhere and most signs are in English too.

Jewish Synagogue

The Jewish quarter extends into the eastern part of the city, but has conserved little or nothing of the memory of the Jews who lived here for more than a thousand years. Once passed the ruins of the gothic church of Ste Marie de la Victoire one reaches the platia Evreon Martirion (Square of the Jewish Martyrs) with a monument in the centre of the square in memory of the deportation of the Jews to the Nazi concentration camps in 1944. The only synagogue to have survived is the recently restored Kahal Kadosh Shalom, which houses a museum dedicated to the history of the Jews of Rhodes.
