Welcome to the website of lowyfamily.org. This site is concerned with the life and descendants of Abraham Ha-levi of Aussee in Moravia (now Úsov in the Czech Republic) born c.1700,  died 29 October 1774.

The history of the Jewish community in Moravia is set out at http://www.respectandtolerance.com. That website includes many photographs of Úsov, its synagogue as it is now and as it was in 1930 and the Jewish cemetery.

Lowy as a name derives from the German rendering Löwy of the Hebrew לֵוִי Levi.

This website is not connected to the activities of the Australian Lowy family or to Frank Lowy, although it is possible that they are descendants.
