Yitzchak RABINOWITZ 19th cent. #rabbinic #belarus

Yonatan Ben-Ari

I have been researching my supposed connection to a Rabbi David ben Moshe and Leah of Kletzk, of Novarodok, (no family name known), and author of a rabbinical treatise  "Galya Mesechta" for many years. Recently I have been contacted by a member of this forum who is a descendant of a daughter (first name unknown) of Rabbi David, who married a Yitzchak RABINOWITZ who had two sons, Shmuel and "unknown". 

Besides Rabbi David's daughter, he had a son Moshe who married a daughter of a HOROWITZ of Minsk . Moshe, seemingly not having a family name , adopted the rabbinically prestigious HOROWItz name.  As the great majority of HOROWITZ s are Leviim, this Moshe is one of the few who are not.

I would be very happy to hear from HORWITZ s  who stem from Rabbi David and his son Moshe.

The spelling of HOROWITZ may be variant.
