Israel Bonds mourns the passing of Lowell Lander, who worked for the organization for more than two decades. As head of the Israel Bonds National Labor Division, Lowell passionately mobilized the AFL-CIO at the regional and national level on behalf of Israel. He was also instrumental in facilitating support from the Teamsters.
Lowell developed numerous successful events throughout the U.S., including a high-profile tribute to the AFL-CIO on the occasion of its 50th anniversary. Lowell’s greatest joy was bringing labor leaders to Israel to see the country and meet with their counterparts in the Histadrut, Israel’s labor federation.
His efforts helped secure millions of dollars in Israel bond investments from unions large and small..Lowell’s infectious enthusiasm, love of Israel and solidarity with the American labor movement won him friends across the country and in Israel.
May his memory be a blessing.
