About Author

Grace Aguilar

Grace Aguilar (1816-1847) was a Jewish British novelist, poet, and advocate for Jewish education and women's rights. She was born in London to a Sephardic Jewish family and grew up in a traditional Jewish household. Aguilar's writing often focused on the experiences of Jewish people and their struggles for acceptance and recognition in British society. Her works include novels such as "Home Influence" and "The Days of Bruce", as well as collections of poetry and non-fiction works on Jewish history and religion. Aguilar's life was cut short at the age of 31 when she died in 1847 from complications related to anorexia. Despite her short life, her work had a significant impact on Jewish literature and culture, and she remains an important figure in the history of Jewish women's writing and activism. Aguilar was cremated in Germany's Hessen region in the Frankfurt Jewish cemetery. "Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her at the gate," is how Proverbs 31 describes the "woman of valor" and is used as the inscription on her tombstone.
