(Bruriah's father, HaRav Yitzchok Hutner, z"l)
Bruria Hutner David, (1936 - ) daughter of Rabbi Isaac Hutner, is the current dean of Beth Jacob Jerusalem (commonly known as BJJ), a prestigious religious girls seminary located in Jerusalem, Israel. Known as Rebbitzen David, she was on one of the planes, along with her husband and parents, which were hijacked by the Black September terrorists in 1970.
Dr. Bruria Hutner David received her doctorate in philosophy from Columbia University in 1971. Her dissertation dealt with The dual role of Rabbi Zvi Hirsch Chajes: Traditionalist and Maskil. Her dissertation demonstrates a thorough mastery of the source material, and deals with R. Chajes relationships both in the world of Haskallah as well as in the traditional world of Orthodox Judaism.
She's molding the young, impressionable women of tomorrow, a Columbia grad of the 60's?!
You get my drift here?
