About Doña Gracia Nasi

Doña Gracia Nasi, born in Lisbon (1510–1569), was among the most formidable figures of the Sefardi world in the sixteenth century. She was a shrewd and resourceful businesswoman, a leader of the Sefardi diaspora and a generous benefactor of Jewish enterprises. A legend in her own time, she is best known for initiating a bold forward-looking project—an effort to establish a self-sufficient Jewish settlement on the site of the ancient city of Tiberias in the Holy Land as a refuge for Jews and for conversos fleeing from Spain and Portugal.
