Alpha Epsilon Pi is a Jewish college fraternity for men that was founded to provide opportunities for Jewish men seeking the best college experience. Alpha Epsilon Pi, also known as AEPi, was founded in 1913 at New York University by Charles C. Moskowitz, David K. Schafer, Isador M. Glazer, Herman L. Kraus, Arthur E. Leopold, Benjamin M. Meyer, Arthur M. Lipkint, Charles J. Pintel, Maurice Plager, Emil Lustgarten, and Hyman Shulman.
AEPi is the first and only fraternity to establish a chapter in Israel. Although the fraternity was founded for Jewish men, it does not discriminate. The fraternity is open to all men who are willing to adopt the fraternity's purpose and values. The current headquarters for AEPi is located in Indianapolis, Indiana.
The official philanthropies of Alpha Epsilon Pi are Shaare Zedek Medical Center and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
