We at AEPi believe in the Jewish tradition of Tikkun Olam, or “Repairing the world”. This ties into the jewish belief of “tzedakah,” meaning that we have a responsibility to look out for each other through giving to those who are less fortunate. We host a yearly event every spring to raise awareness and fundraise for tzedakah. The proceeds are donated to AEPi’s international Repair the World Fund. You can find more information about our national philanthropy here. We also donate our time and energy to local causes in the form of community service.
Our specific beneficiary which we currently support is the Israel Cancer Research Fund. You can research more about this fantastic organization here. It is the sole charitable organization in North America to support cancer research in Israel. In addition to supporting cancer patients within Israel’s borders, the research done by top Israeli scientists has already helped to improve the lives of cancer patients worldwide. If you would like to support this cause, please donate today!
The Tau Pi Chapter of Alpha Epsilon Pi believes that in order to be wholesome men, we need to do our part and give back to the communities that we call home. One of the four corners of our pledge pin represents mutual helpfulness, and just as Williamsburg has helped us by providing us all a place we call home, we can help Williamsburg in return. We take civic engagement very seriously. So far, AEPi Tau Pi has participated in numerous Campus Kitchens shifts helping provide food for the food insecure. This semester, we are planning to engage in trash pickups across the city to make a more beautiful environment to live in.
