I am trying to establish a connection between the above families that
during the latter part of the 19th and first half of the 20th century
arrived in the USA -HOROWITZ was a well known orthodox rabbi in Hartford
,Ct.-POCHOWITZ who came to Palestine to Petach Tikva, ABRAMOWITZ who also
came to Palestine at the end of the 19th century, to Jerusalem. The KATZIN
family are supposedly related through a Miriam ABRAMOWITZ-KATZIN >from
Raanana (israel) and grew up as an orphan in the POCHOWITZ home in Petach
The relationship between the HOROWITZ and POCHOWITZ families are known, but
the surviving family members of these families, who are "sure" that
ABRAMOWITZ'S are also connected don't know the exact relationship.
If by slight chance anyone out there knows the connection I and several
others in my family would appreciate hearing >from you.
