Community Service

For over a quarter century Dr. Loew has championed the needs and issues of children of the Holocaust, including Hidden Children — those who concealed their Jewish identity to survive the Nazi era.  He helped develop and organize the World Federation of Jewish Child Holocaust Survivors and Descendants in 1988, and he has been active in the National Association of Jewish Child Holocaust Survivors (NAHOS).  He has continued his active participation in these organizations, including conducting workshops and serving as group facilitator.

In recognition of Dr. Loew’s extensive work with Holocaust causes throughout his career, in 2007 the New Jersey Senate and General Assembly presented him with a certificate honoring his achievements.

Through the National Institute of the Psychotherapies, Dr. Loew counseled relatives of those who perished in the collapse of the World Trade Center in 2001.
