  • This religious building is well maintained and hospitable, the only one with a brochure that gave the necessary explanations. I also had the time to sit down to see better.

  • Kahal Shalom synagogue is traditional Sephardic style of having the "tevah" (the prayer reading table) in the center. The floor is decorated with graceful black and white mosaic stone patterns.
  • I was on Rhodes for Yom Kippur. I had decided I was not going to observe this most important of the Jewish holidays. But I was not entirely comfortable with this decision, so I went to this synagogue. Women had to sit upstairs. It was very powerful and I ended up spending the entire day there. Jews from the cruise ships would step in for a short nod to this holy day. But when they then wanted to leave to see the rest of the island, the congregation wouldn't let them leave if it meant losing the minyan. These tourists played a very important role for the small congregation that was worshipping.
  • Very beautiful synagogue. Reserved really good.
  • The oldest synagogue in Rhodes, what remains, revisited and restored, of the glories of a past of ancient Sephardic community (which Rhodes grew to up to 6000 people came to have a rabbinical school important enough to deserve the same Rhodes on behalf of little Jerusalem). Our luck, experience we are jealously proud, was to meet Sami Modiano, one of those people who experience in life has made strong as the Oaks, beautiful as diamonds. 96 years all Registry Office of course, but who spoke to us was that 13-year-old boy snatched from his childhood and cast in the horror of war: with its tale of the Jewish community, deportation in concentration camps, with his explanations of the synagogue and Jewish culture, rituals and gave us one of the most beautiful and unforgettable moments of this trip.
