From Jack Sasson at the Agade list:
Dispatches from Israel are conveying the incredibly sad news that Victor Avigdor Hurowitz died today, after a series of complications arising from struggles with a long term illness.May his memory be for a blessing.
He was just too young and did not live to receive a Festschrift currently being prepared in his honor. His website is at http://profiler.bgu.ac.il/frontoffice/ShowUser.aspx?id=373.
As yet, I have not information about funeral arrangements.
UPDATE: Again, from Jack Sasson:
