Jewish Museum in Rhodes

The Jewish Museum of Rhodes: The Jewish Museum is found in the Old Jewish quarter of Rhodes Town. The museum, founded by Aaron Hasson in 1977 is housed in two rooms at the historic Kahal Shalom Synagogue of Rhodes, built in 1577. The museum reopened in 2006 after undergoing several renovations. The original objective of the Jewish Museum of Rhodes is to present historic facts from the life of Jewish people on the island.

The exhibits displayed in the museum include many ketubbah, that is a marriage contract, from 1852 and 1891 as well as a Jewish theological book written in the Ladini dialect (Judeo-Spanish). There is also a Turkish travel document issued in 1910 by the authority of Sultan Mehmet Reshat allowing 20-year old Isaac Nessim Ben Veniste to leave with his family to another country. On the walls, you will see many photos of the Rhodes-Jewish community from different periods.
