Lowey’s service to AJC, the Jewish people, and all humanity has been an inspiration to the many who follow in his footsteps. He was born in 1933, and he grew up in St. Albans, Queens. A graduate of Woodmere Academy, Harvard College, and Columbia Law School, Lowey served in the U.S. Coast Guard Reserve and as Assistant U.S. Attorney, Eastern District of New York, before co-founding Lowey Dannenberg P.C., of which he is Chair Emeritus, Counsel. He has been a longtime member of AJC’s Board of Governors and is a member of BILLA, AJC's Arthur and Rochelle Belfer Institute for Latino and Latin American Affairs. BILLA is a unique initiative that strengthens the Jewish community's bonds of friendship with growing U.S. Latino communities and the countries of Latin America, Spain, and Portugal. The Harrison resident is also a trustee and former Board Chair of World Learning and the Experiment in International Living, and is a long member of JCCH in Harrison. Lowey and his wife, Nita, have three children and eight grandchildren.
