In my search for my family connection with the HURWITZ family
Novarudok, I found on ftjp a Simona Yehudit LEVINGER (POCHOVITZ) whom
I guess is named after her ancestor, Shimon HURWITZ of Petach Tikva,
Israel. Shimon had a daughter who married a POCHOVICH who I believe
eventually moved to Chicago, and as I have heard that both his
daughter and husband have passed away.
If anyone on this forum is a member of the above POCHOVITZ family and
has extensive knowledge of their family tree I would be happy to hear
My ABRAMOWITZ ancestors were also from Novarudok and left there (as
did the HURWITZs) in the latter part of the 19th century.

p.s. I have received several suggestion of doing a dna test which is
very hard to do in Israel for reasons I have written in the past
