Alpha Epsilon Pi History
The Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity was founded underneath Washington Square Arch at New York University on November 7, 1913. The 11 young Jewish men who came together to found AEPi became known as the "Immortal Eleven". The "Immortal Eleven" were 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, Hyman Schulman, and Emil Lustgarten. Currently, there are over 186 active chapters across the world and this number continues to grow.

Alpha Epsilon Pi is a Jewish fraternity and brotherhood in Alpha Epsilon Pi is open to all who are willing to espouse its values and mission.
