(BLOG) Dona Gracia Recognized As Zionist Hero In Beit Hanassi

"Once the wealthiest woman in the world, Dona Gracia planned to establish an autonomous Jewish community in Tiberias.

She was more than 300 years ahead of Theodor Herzl in conceiving a movement whereby Jews would once again take possession of their spiritual homeland, and way ahead of Baron Rothschild in purchasing property in the Land of Israel, but only now is Dona Gracia, once the wealthiest woman in the world, being accorded her rightful place in Jewish history and the history of Israel.

Various novels have been written about her, with a blending of fact and fiction, but she has entered Israeli consciousness only in recent years."
