A Jewish Student’s Defiant Stand Against Campus Antisemitism — Brother Levi Fox (Texas, 2027)

“October 7th was the deadliest day for the Jewish people since the holocaust. The horrors of that day will remain in our memories for generations to come. However, we have to decide how it defines us. Do we get scared and hide our identities or do we show the world how proud we are to be Jews? Well, I don’t plan on hiding anything,” said Levi Fox (Texas, 2027). The rising Sophomore from Houston – recently elected vice-president of his AEPi chapter -- has been at the forefront of helping to develop much of that pride. “I graduated high school [...]

Brother Yehonathan Kleinerman (Arizona, 2026), who is the current chapter president, led a group of Brothers to the City Council and spoke. By the end of the night, and with the help of Past Supreme Master Jeff Jacobson and others in the Jewish [...]
