Invitation to the Annual Hanukkah Meeting

of the Horowitz Families Association

The program of activities of the Horowitz Families Association for the year 5762 (2001-2002) will start with a conference:

Horowitz and Chelouche family members in the early days of Tel-Aviv.

Several Horowitz’s were among the first settlers of Tel-Aviv and developed particular relationships with members of the Chelouche family.

The meeting will be held at the conference hall of the Bible Museum in Tel-Aviv

(16 Rothschild Boulevard) on Tuesday, December 11th, 2001, the second day of Hanukkah, at 17:00.
