HOROWITZ-SOLOVEITCHIK connections #rabbinic
Interested to know if the rabbinical HOROWITZ family of Novarodok and the SOLOVEITCHIK family are related. The HOROWITZ (spelling ?) family includes Rabbi Yitzchak Simcha ben Yosef Ber, who was a Rabbi on Hartford, Ct. and his cousin Teb. Shimon H. who was a schochet in Petach Tikva, Israel.
The two above families are leveiim and the name Yosef Ber may be a hint to a connection.
My interest in this comes from hearing in my childhood that my maternal great grandfather, Mayer ABRAMOWITZ,came to Israel from Novarodok and his son was close to both families in Israel and in Hartford and N.Y. C. In the 1930s.
