Ari and Sari Horowitz, both 51, formerly of Phila­delphia, were struck and killed — and their son Ami, 27, was seriously injured but is recovering — when a reportedly careening car struck them as they left Shab­bat services on Sept. 15 at Young Israel of East Bruns­wick, N.J., where Ari had served as president from 2005 to 2007.

Another couple from Young Israel also was injured in the accident.

It was not the first trag­edy to befall the Horowitz family; Eva and Yosi Horo­witz, Ari’s parents, onetime managers of the since closed Rosenberg's Hebrew Books in the Northeast, lost their son Neil — Ari’s brother — in a traffic accident in the mid-1980s.

In addition to Ari’s parents, the couple is survived by daughter Natanya Tropp and two grandchildren.
