Today only the building of the Synagogue remains on the island, on 4, Alexandrou Diakou Street. It is easily recognized due to the Star of David on the façade and the gates. It is now used as a Municipal Cultural Centre. A small Jewish cemetery, where some tombstones date back to the 17th century, can also be found in Kos.
