JOEL MARKOWITZ  

On Tuesday, November 7, 2017 of North Bethesda, MD. Beloved son of the late Cantor Morris and Faye Markowitz; loving and cherished brother of Rabbi Chanan (Ellen) Markowitz, Bruce (Petrina) Markowitz, Stuart (Beverly) Markowitz, David (Stephanie) Markowitz and Saul (Bonnie) Markowitz. Treasured uncle of Nina (Joshua) Markowitz, Sarah (Igor) Grobman, Brian (Jenna) Markowitz, Joshua (Anna) Markowitz, Tova Markowitz, Eric Markowitz, Michelle Markowitz, Andrew Markowitz and Brandon Markowitz. Proud great uncle of Maksim, Chase, Ava and Declan. Also survived by many loving cousins, aunts, uncles and fiercely devoted friends.
A native of Buffalo, NY, Joel was an outstanding academic scholar, prolific writer and a lifelong ice hockey enthusiast. His wry sense of humor was classic. He was a highly acclaimed and award-winning theater and performing arts critic. Joel was the founding editor-in-chief and publisher of the DC Metro Theater Arts, the largest on-line source of performing arts coverage in the Mid-Atlantic United States. He promoted and encouraged the professional careers of countless and grateful performing artists who also mourn the passing of an adored treasure. Joel will be greatly missed by his loyal family, friends and the national theater community. His lifelong legacy of loving kindness and generosity will endure forever.
