JF&CS to Honor Krantz/Horowitz Family For Decades of Community Service

Many of us, old enough to remember, have fond memories of the hotels and bungalow colonies of the “Borsch Belt.” It was here where members of the “tribe” met to escape life’s challenges and relax in the mountain air of the Catskills. The setting was also a place of summer employment for many young people. It was only natural the mix spawned many a “shidduch”. Such was the case when Bob Krantz and Bobbi Lewis met at the Delano Hotel in Monticello, he a waiter and she an office manager.

As their journey together began Bob began a successful dental practice for 45 years before retiring. Bobbi eventually pursued her calling of bringing the arts to the Ocean County community by becoming Director of the Jay & Linda Grunin Center for the Arts at Ocean County College. During the same period as they settled and put down roots —the next generation began. First Andy, then Brian and Ricki. Andy and Ricki eventually established roots and family in Monmouth County while Brian escaped the suburbs to the Big Apple. Settling in the community, Andy began the practice of law and Ricki followed in her father’s footsteps and became a dentist. Andy met, courted then married Laura Simon. Laura whose past work and volunteer experience with many non-profits later, gave her the knowledge base to establish her own public relations and marketing business. Ricki’s life took a turn, with an assist from Laura, when she met and later married Ira Horowitz. Ira whose business acumen and charm has vaulted him to be a VP of Global Alliances for Trianz Inc. Each brought strong values and expanded the family horizons with their own unique experiences.

The generous contributions of Tzedakah and countless hours of community involvement of all our honorees is extensive. Over the decades many organizations have benefited from their largesse and volunteerism: to name a few; Jewish Family & Children’s Service of Monmouth County, Jewish Federation in the Heart of NJ, Ocean County Jewish Federation, Kiwanis, Beth Am Shalom Synagogue in Lakewood, Temple Beth Miriam, Torat El Synagogue, Solomon Schechter Day School, Jewish Community Center of Monmouth County, Cardozo Society, and the Maimonides Society. 

At their zenith, of this extraordinary family, is a passion for life and guiding the generations to come. The future belongs to the next generation, the children and grandchildren of our honorees, Jonathan, Halle, Danni, Morgan, Ellie, and Sophia.

Jewish Family & Children’s Service of Monmouth is proud of our honorees, the legacy they established and the gifts from these wonderful families.
