Horowitz, David

(1899-1979)
   Born at Drogobych near Lvov in the Ukraine and educated at Lvov and Vienna, Horowitz, immigrated (see ALIYA) to Palestine in 1920. He became a member of the executive committee of the Histadrut in 1923 but also worked with a number of enterprises, served on government committees, and became director of the economic department of the Jewish Agency. After Israel's independence, Horowitz became director general of the Ministry of Finance. In 1954, he became governor of the Bank of Israel, a position that he held until 1971. He was responsible for the stability of Israel's currency at home and abroad and for the management of the public debt, among other functions.
