The Jewish Museum of Rhodes opens for the first time in 1997. Aron Hasson ,attorney, from Los Angeles and Rhodian third generation, is the founder and the one who inspired the idea of creating a museum. He noticed the lack of awareness for the unique history of the Community of the local community and visitors to the island. So as a first step in October 1997, on his own initiative and funding, opened its doors to an exhibition with photographs in the space next to the Synagogue, where was the women’s section.
