News & Jews- AEPi Launches Innovative “Chapter Without Walls”

  Alpha Epsilon Pi International, the world’s largest and leading Jewish college fraternity, has launched an innovative new virtual fraternity chapter—AEPi’s “Chapter Without Walls” —for men looking for the specific brand of Jewish leadership development and advocacy training that AEPi provides but attend colleges at which there is not an active AEPi chapter.
    The AEPi Chapter Without Walls currently has members from schools such as Clemson University, The New School, Savanah College of Art and Design, Furman University and Fordham University. The group meets virtually on a regular basis and receives guidance and support from the AEPi Headquarters staff. Members are able to avail themselves of AEPi International’s regular leadership and advocacy training programs such as the Leven Leadership Academy and the AEPi International Convention along with a proprietary online leadership training program which is provided to all AEPi members.
    “I was very involved in BBYO in high school and when I chose where I went to college (Savannah College of Art & Design), I knew that there wasn’t going to be a big Jewish community or the brotherhood of a fraternity. I thought that would be ok, but I was wrong,” said Andrew Biller, president of the AEPi Chapter Without Walls. “I met some people from AEPi International at the JNF-USA conference, and they have worked hard with me to get this started. It feels great to be a part of AEPi.”

    “Our mission—to develop the future leaders of the Jewish community—is more important than ever at this time of rampant antisemitism and anti-Israel activity. Jewish communities on college campuses—no matter their size—need leadership and AEPi can provide it. I’m proud that we are continuing to innovate and finding new ways to bring the AEPi experience to more students,” said Rob Derdiger, AEPi’s CEO.
    Alpha Epsilon Pi (AEPi) is the world’s leading Jewish college fraternity, operating chapters on more than 150 college campuses around the world. Founded in 1913, AEPi has more than 100,000 living alumni. The fraternity’s mission—developing the future leaders of the Jewish community—is demonstrated every day through acts of brotherhood, Tzedakah (charity), social awareness and support for Jewish communities and Israel.
