Alpha Epsilon Pi Announces $1 Million Philanthropic Initiative

Jacob Newberger serves as an automation engineer at Panacea Technologies, a Montgomeryville, Pennsylvania automation systems consulting company. A graduate of Pennsylvania State University, he
holds a BS in mechanical engineering, and gained substantial leadership experience while attending the school. In addition to leading a team of four students to win a BAE Systems-sponsored engineering competition, Jacob Newberger also served as president of the Alpha Epsilon Pi (AEPi) fraternity.
An international Jewish fraternity with chapters located across six countries, Alpha Epsilon Pi has an alumni base of over 90,000 brothers. The organization has expanded to more than 180 colleges since its establishment in 1913, and strives to prepare the future leaders of the worldwide Jewish community through a number of Tzedakkah, or charity, and social awareness initiatives.
Dedicated to the philosophy of Tikkun Olam, or “repairing the world,” AEPi recently declared its commitment to raising a collective $1 million to benefit 10 Jewish philanthropic agencies and initiatives. The fraternity announced the plan at its 101st annual International Convention in Toronto, pledging to donate $100,000 to the following organizations: Gift of Life; Heroes to Heroes Foundation; Israel Children’s Cancer Foundation; Taglit-Birthright Israel; MadaTech Museum; Simon Wiesenthal Center; Innovation: Africa; IDF Widows and Orphans Organization; B’nai B’rith International’s Disaster Relief Program; and BBYO. AEPi surpassed its goals in its most recent philanthropic effort, completing a seven-year, $700,000 fundraising initiative three years ahead of schedule.
