The "Casa Dona Gracia" museum

Casa Dona Gracia is a unique “living museum” in its design and setup. We invite you to feel the special atmosphere, you may touch exhibits and any object you like. The central story of the “house” is based on the personality of the 16th century Jewish leader Dona Gracia, or, in her Hebrew name, Hanna Nassi, and stresses her actions on behalf of the Jewish people. Casa Dona Gracia is a unique cultural enterprise stressing the involvement and centrality of women in history in general and particularly in Jewish history by glorifying her name, figure and actions. The central ideas of the Casa are fostering and amplifying female leadership in human and Jewish history, expressing the central legacy of Ladino culture and stressing the centrality of Tiberias in the history of the Jewish people.
