Lahav has been dedicated in memory of the renowned educator, Rebbetzin Zahava Braunstein, A”H. Thousands around the globe were touched by the life, words, and deeds of this remarkable woman. She was an electrifying speaker, teacher par excellence, and mentor and confidant to so many.Zahava Braunstein was born in 1944 to Yaakov and Menucha Zwiebel, Galician Jews who escaped the Nazi inferno shortly before the war. As a child in summer camp she volunteered to tell a story at a camp fire one night and from that time on her talents as a story teller became legendary. At Yeshiva University High School, her leadership abilities, kindness to all, and natural flair for drama made her a quick favorite. After graduating, she, together with a small group of friends attended the Beth Jacob Teachers’ Seminary. She was profoundly influenced by the Rabbis and teachers there and it was in Beth Jacob that her dreams of teaching Torah values and ideals to Jewish girls began to blossom.
