HOROWITZ--Barbara. The Jewish Theological Seminary mourns the loss of Barbara Silver Horowitz, JTS trustee since 1999 and member of the board's Committee on The Jewish Museum. Ms. Horowitz was also a former member of the Advisory Board of JTS's William Davidson Graduate School of Jewish Education. Throughout her distinguished service, her thoughtful counsel was guided by her strong commitment to traditional Jewish values, and she was a determined advocate for JTS, around the board table and in the Jewish world. Loving wife of Gedale Horowitz, mother of Ruth Ellen and Seth Robert, and grandmother of Jared Isaac and Elliot, Ms. Horowitz was a dedicated philanthropist and champion of education, health care, and the arts. May her family be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem. Arnold Eisen, Chancellor Abby Joseph Cohen, Board Chair
