Scope and Content Note

This collection contains a copy of the ethical will of William Abramowitz, first written in Jerusalem on August 3, 1963 and revised in Boston on October 15, 1970. The will highlights Abramowitz's faith and the importance he places on Judaism and family. The three-page will ends with the names and dates for certain relatives, including Moshe Yitzack (1865-1940), Menachem Mendel (1898-1958), Zev (1914-1972), Kathriel (1950), Avigal (1948), Channah Gitel (1946), and Sara (1945). Based on the death date for Zev (1972) it is clear these names and dates were added after the revision of the will in 1970.
