Connection between HOROWITZ and ABRAMOWITZ families-Novarodok/Hartford, Ct. #usa


Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

I am still trying to confirm a family connection between the HOROWITZ
and ABRAMOWITZ families from Novarodok. Both families, it seems left
Novarodok during the latter part of the 19th century when one
branch-Shimon HOROWITRZ came to Petach Tikva in Israel and another
branch went to Hartford, Ct. (Rabbi Isaac Simcha HOROWITZ -d.1936).

Many members of my ABRAMOWITZ family call the HOROWITZs from both
sides (Israel and USA) cousins. One of the HOROWITZ descendants
(Waxman) said to me that he had seen a family tree on which appeared
our ABRAMOWITZ but did not remember where and when it was.

What seems a possiblity is a family note stating that one of my
ABRAMOWITZ ancestors was a brother of Rabbi David-Rabbi of Novarodok
during the 19th cent. not family known to me-and that his son Moshe
married a HOROWITZ from Minsk and adopted that family name as his
own.

I would like to make contact with any of the Horowitzs or descendants
of of the above Rabbi David (son of Moshe of Kletzk) who can possibly
confirm our connection.

I would recommend that you contact the Jewish Historical Society of Greater Hartford. ( jhsgh,org ) Rabbi Isaac Horowitz was a very prominent Rabbi in Hartford. The archives of the society may have some clues for you.

We have corresponded previously on the Abramowitz side of the family, but I am not sure if I ever mentioned that New Haven also has a Jewish historical society.  There were several synagogues within a short distance of each other in New Haven in the early part of the 20th century and before.
