On the occasion of the 25th wedding anniversary of Jack Horwitz and Ida Dorman Horwitz. there was a gathering of the Horwitz Family in Chicago in 1948. These stills are from a a black and white 8 mm movie made by Ruby Kaufman. Terry Howard obtained the movie from his widow, Eleanor, before she passed away in 1987. Terry had a friend in the motion picture processing business who colorized the old movie and added a music background.  We will soon have a link for you to view the movie. We express gratitude to the Kaufmans and to Terry Howard for preserving this important bit of Horwitz family history. Terry Howard has been able to identify many of the people in the photos. Jerry Horwitz (Long Beach) has also helped. However, there are still many unknowns. If you know who they are please send me an email and I will add the information Please visit all three pages of photos of this event.
