SUPREME MASTER LETTER
I write this article about six weeks before our
country’s national elections. Both parties have jumped
on the “change” bandwagon and regardless of the
party that prevails, change is promised.
In our own fraternity, there is a great deal that does
not need to be changed and there are some other
things where can use some significant improvement.
What we are doing correctly: We are living our
mission to foster the growth of leaders of the North
American Jewish community. Those leaders are
found in our chapters today. They are found in our
young alumni working with their local synagogues,
in Hillels, with B’nai B’rith, within local politics as
well as national politics. Our brothers, both undergraduate and alumni, are indeed leaders.
The leaders come to our conventions, like Florida Congressmen Ron Klein, Knesset Member Yoel
Hasson, Chicago White Sox and Chicago Bulls Owner Jerry Reinsdorf, and B’nai B’rith President
Moishe Smith and so many other brothers.
Leaders are what we attract and what we foster.
Our undergraduate initiations continue to be at an all time high. The message is clear and it is attractive.
Let us be ever vigilant to keep these numbers growing. This is our future as well as our present.
Alpha Epsilon Pi has never forgotten our mission and that is why we continue to be the premier
international Jewish fraternity.
What of change? What of doing things better?
We have alumni that are disenchanted. There are some of our former leaders who are unhappy. We
must be more welcoming and inclusive to our alumni and ‘show them the love’. All undergrads become
alums and there is a place in this fraternity for each of us, regardless of how many years it has been
since we took our oath.
New initiatives will be forthcoming, including job boards for alums, particularly (but not limited to)
young alums trying to get started, a newsfeed type blog, and a disscusion forum.
If you have suggestions or ideas of any kind on how to become a better and a more inclusive fraternity
to our alumni, please email me at email@example.com. I want to hear from you. Your fraternity wants to
hear from you.
In this era of talking about change, let’s make some positive steps as the new year approaches. I wish
each of you a healthy and prosperous 5769. L’Shanah Tovah Tekatavu.

ALPHA EPSILON PI BROTHERS IN CHICAGO
Over 600 brothers from 133 chapters across
North America gathered together for Alpha
Epsilon Pi’s 95th Anniversary Convention in
Chicago, Illinois this past August 6-10.
We are excited to share the success of two
pre-convention meetings. One was our newly
designed house managers training seminar by
Director of Housing Greg Knapp, Housing
Coordinator Chris Allen, and undergraduates
Daniel Corry (Georgia 2010), Chad Philips (San
Diego State 2009) and Thomas Rosen (Arizona
2010). During the seminar the house managers
for the 2008-2009 school year got a chance to
discuss the issues that they were facing at their
chapters and also hear from their peers how
situations are dealt with at other chapters.
House managers also learned about how the
international office can aid them in ensuring a
The second pre-convention meeting was the Advanced Leadership and Risk Management Institute. Lead
by Dr. Lori Hart-Ebert, the brothers in attendance learned through an interactive discussion how positive
leadership and risk management are linked together. This institute was designed to give those in attendance
the tools to go back to their chapters to educate their Brothers about positive decision making and to reduce
risk through leadership practices. Her program was also intended to improve the sense of community
within the chapters.
The featured speaker at the opening session was Brother Ron Klein (Ohio State 1979), who is a
Congressman representing the 22nd District of Florida. Congressman Klein was introduced by Brian
Innenberg, current Master at the Eta Chapter at Ohio State University.
We were very lucky to have in attendance the President and CEO of the NIC, Mr. Pete Smithheisler. Mr.
Smithheisler delivered a speech on ritual and the importance of taking our ritual and living it on a daily
Brothers enjoyed listening to this year’s keynote speaker, Brother Jerry Reinsdorf (George Washington
1957), the owner of both the Chicago Bulls and Chicago White Sox. Brother Reinsdorf shared with
brothers how his experience as an AEPi brother helped him get where he is today. He talked to the brothers
about living life the right way and how the little things you do in life will come back and help you later in life.
After his speech he spent some time taking questions from brothers about the sports industry.
During convention we also welcomed some newly initiated Honorary Brothers. The newly initiated
brothers are: George Vizer, Eliot Jacoby (father of ELC Zak Jacoby), Joel Kaplan (father of Director of
Expansion Steven Kaplan), Member of Knesset Yoel Hasson, Avi Rubel, Jacob Baime, Rabbi Moshe Isenberg,
and Gary Javitch. We congratulate them on becoming Brothers of the Alpha Epsilon Pi Fraternity.
Convention was not all business and no play for the brothers in attendance. Brothers attended a comedy
show at Second City, and also had the option of attending a White Sox vs. Red Sox baseball game.
At the Gala Awards Banquet we installed Mark Schiff as our new Supreme Master. There were 150 Delta
chapter brothers in attendance to honor their brother as he assumed office. The banquet was also a time to
recognize chapters and brothers who did outstanding work over the past year.
Mark your calendars now. The 96th Anniversary Convention is going to be held in Las Vegas at the
Flamingo Hilton. Convention will be August 12th-16th, 2009.

B’ NAI B’RITH INTERNATIONAL
Dear AEPi Brother
It is with great pleasure that we announce the creation of the Alpha Epsilon Pi (AEPi) Lodge of
B’nai B’rith International (BBI).
Approximately one year ago BBI entered into a formal partnership with AEPi. Through commu-
nity service, educational programming, and advocacy, we will be working together to encourage brothers
to remain involved in the Jewish community after college graduation.
This spring, joint programming was rolled out on campuses throughout North America. Our first
major program focused on Black-Jewish relations, and was provided in conjunction with Kappa
Alpha Psi fraternity. Ongoing programs will include community service projects such as Project
H.O.P.E., in which volunteers deliver holiday food baskets to those in need, and working with senior
citizens through the BBI senior housing program. This is just the beginning. The opportunities are
endless and we look forward to your involvement!
The AEPi lodge is international in scope as all alumni brothers will be in the same group. Addi-
tionally, beginning in Fall ’07 all new brothers of AEPi are receiving gift memberships to BBI until
they graduate. Upon graduation, they will be asked to continue their membership by participating in
By becoming a member of this lodge you will become involved in everything in which we are
involved. You join a group with more than 200,000 members and supporters whose reach extends to
more than 50 countries around the world. Your voice will be heard at the U.N. and on Capitol Hill.
Through B’nai B’rith, you will be involved in all the important issues of the day. When actions mean
more than words, you’ll be there, too. Through this lodge, you will be supporting this newly formed
With your help we can work together to cultivate the Jewish leaders of tomorrow.

KEY NOTE SPEAKER
BROTHER JERRY REINSDORF GIVES KEY NOTE SPEECH AT ANNIVERSARY CONVENTION
When Jerry Reinsdorf (1957) walked into the room at
convention the small group of alumni brothers that had gathered
before his lecture stood in silence. You could see in everyone’s
eyes that they were standing in the presence of amazing human
being. Jerry grew up in Brooklyn, New York a huge baseball fan.
He was a shy kid in high school and didn’t want to spend his time
studying. He wanted to get out and listen to the Dodgers game.
After high school Jerry went on with his education at George
Washington University. He was approached by TEP but the Alpha
Epsilon Pi brothers found him and he pledged four weeks later.
There were nine in his pledge class and by the time he left campus
AEPi was the biggest fraternity on campus. “My whole personality
changed because of being AEPi,” he said. After his time at George
Washington Jerry moved to Chicago to attend law school at
Northwestern and he said he never left after that.
Jerry started his professional career as a tax attorney with the
International Revenue Service and now many years later he is
fulfilling a dream owning two professional sports teams, the
Chicago White Sox, and the Chicago Bulls. On October 26, 2005,
Jerry accepted the Commissioner’s Trophy from Bed Selig after
the Chicago White Sox swept their way to the team’s first World
Series Championship since 1917. He has brought the city of
Chicago and its sports fans seven World Championship titles. He
is the third owner in the history of North American Sports to
win a championship in two different sports. He is quoted as saying
that he would swap all six NBA Bulls Championships for the one
White Sox championship, clearly showing his love for baseball
over basketball. He refuses to allow the Bulls to go over the salary
cap and into the luxury tax domain in his quest for a return to the
Championship years of the Bulls.
He doesn’t spend all of his time in a sports complex watching his teams. Jerry has played a critical role in the development of
the west side area surrounding the United Center and was responsible for introducing an innovative reading program to the
Chicago Public Schools. Through the new Chicago Bulls/Chicago White Sox Training Academy, which opened in 2001, and
outreach efforts such as White Sox Training Centers and Chicago Bulls Basketball Schools, Reinsdorf ’s franchises promote
sports to thousands of youth each year while instilling a love of the game in future fans. In 1998, he was honored with the
Guardian of Children Award from the Jewish Council for Youth Services. As Chairman of the White Sox, he was instrumental
in initiating Chicago White Sox Charities, the arm of the baseball organization that raises funds for cancer research, children’s
and seniors programs. Chicago Baseball Cancer Charities has twice conferred its Hallmark Award to Reinsdorf in recognition
of his efforts.
Jerry honored Alpha Epsilon Pi brothers by being the keynote speaker at this year’s anniversary convention in Chicago. He
spoke about how Alpha Epsilon Pi helped get him to where he is today. “If I had not been an AEPi, things would be a whole lot
different,” he said during his lecture. He wanted to get through to the undergraduate brothers that you have to treat people well
and the small things you do in life will come back to you when you least expect it. His example for the boys was that he sent Ken
Griffey Jr. a letter of congratulations when he hit his 600th home run and that letter helped Jr. make his decision on coming to
play for the White Sox. Jerry ended his lecture telling the undergraduates to “Never forget your roots from AEPi.”
After his short, funny, and to the point speech Jerry took questions from the brothers tell them that the best moments of his
life was the birth of his children, grandchildren, Konerko handing him the ball, and Winning the World Series. He also talked
about Michael Jordan and the fact that he had a rare combination of assets. He had defense and offense. He ended with saying
that to get into the sports industry all you have to do is get your foot in the door and not be afraid to hear the word no.

ALPHA EPSILON PI COMPUTER UPGRADES
Dear Alpha Epsilon Pi Brothers,
AEPi is charging headlong into the 21st century and has made some big additions
to what we as a Fraternity do online. We have added several significant tools for
the use of both our undergraduate and alumni brothers that I would like to tell
The first thing I would like to tell you about is a project that has us very excited
here at the International Headquarters. AEPi has finally launched a Brothers
only discussion forum and bulletin board system. Located at www.aepilion.com,
it is also easily accessible from the front page of AEPi.org by the link on the
lower right of the page. You will need to click the register link (below the
username and password area) and create an account before you will be able to
view the forums or post to them. In order to ensure that only initiated Brothers
in good standing are allowed to view these private forums, each user registration
will be hand checked against our database. Please bear with us as the initial
influx of users will generate a longer than typical response time for an account
to be verified. Please include your chapter letters (example, Alpha Beta) and your
full name on the registration form. This will speed the verification process.
Please note, the forums require a new and separate log in from the www.aepi.org
website. You will need to click the register link and go through the registration
process before you will be able to access the site.
Once verified, you will be able to view and post to the forums on any number
of topics. Currently we have sub forums dedicated to discussing the various
officer positions, committees, and topics of interest to alumni. As people develop
a need or desire to see other sub forums created we will continue to add them.
This is a great chance to get feedback from Brothers from around the world and
also for Alumni to reconnect and interact with the undergraduates. The more
people visit and more people post the better and more useful the forums will
become to all AEPi Brothers.
The next thing I’d like to tell you about is the new AEPi Blog. For those of
you not familiar with blogs, it is simply a frequently updated web page where you
can read news stories about AEPi or relevant to AEPi similar to what you might
find in an issue of The Lion. The blog however is going to be updated on a
much more frequent basis and you can read about things as they happen. It is
publicly viewable and will have content similar to what you might find in press
releases. The blog is also accessible from the front page of www.aepi.org by the
large button at the bottom right of the screen that says blog. If you have any
questions about the new features we have added or just need some technical
help please do not hesitate to contact me at the office and I would be happy to
walk you through anything you need.
