His wife Rachail graduated from the Beis Ya'acov and Brooklyn College where she received a B.Sc. degree in Nursing. She finished her studies at New York University where she obtained a Double Masters in Nursing and Education.

Rabbi Morowitz, his wife Rachail and five children made aliyah in 1979. Rachail founded the Tessler School of Nursing and was its first Director.
