Jewish Frat Joins Conference of Presidents of Jewish Groups

The international Jewish fraternity, Alpha Epsilon Pi (AEPi), located on American campuses across the country, has been accepted as the first frat to be a member of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations.

“AEPi is a remarkable organization with affiliates on campuses across the country and provides an array of educational and advocacy training programs,” said Conference Chairman Robert G. Sugarman and Malcolm Hoenlein, Executive Vice Chairman/CEO. “The admission of AEPi reflects the commitment to involve the next generation of leaders.

“We look forward to AEPi’s participation as we continue to work with Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life and the Israel on Campus Coalition.”

AEPi’s international president Elan S. Carr and Executive Director Andrew S. Borans said, “Our membership in the Conference means that AEPi will be able to make an even greater impact on Jewish identity, Jewish leadership, and Israel advocacy in the years to come.”

  1. AEPi has opened new opportunities for service to the Jewish community by becoming a member of the Conference of Presidents of Groups. Sadly, the headline writer demeaned the good intentions of AEPi by using an "identity label" that limits the reader's perception of the Fraternity to a limited set of preconceived negative behaviors by using the term, "Frat," in the headline.
