Jules I. “Jay” Levine, Ph.D. Named International President Of Alpha Epsilon Pi Fraternity

November 26, 2003 -- Forty-three years after gradating from the University of Virginia, Jules I. “Jay” Levine, Ph.D., was installed as the international president of Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity. As international president, Levine intends to work on the continued organizational improvement of the fraternity and to plan for the stabilization of the number of chapters, which is expected in the not too distant future.

The fraternity, founded in 1913 at New York University, currently has 125 chapters and colonies throughout the United States and Canada and numbers more than 4,000 active undergraduates and 60,000 living alumni.

As a University of Virginia undergraduate, Levine served as president of the institution’s Alpha Epsilon Pi chapter and played an active role in the U.Va. Inter-Fraternity Council. After graduating from U.Va., he served in the U.S. Navy for three years and then worked for Westinghouse Aerospace Division in Baltimore for five years before returning to the university to pursue graduate work. Levine joined the university faculty in 1972 and currently serves as associate vice president for the U.Va. Health System.

Alpha Epsilon Pi is the only remaining Jewish fraternity on college campuses in North America and continues to enjoy an exceptional rate of membership and chapter growth. The fraternity was founded to provide opportunities for Jewish college men seeking the best possible college and fraternity experience, as well as to develop Jewish and civic leaders. Central to this mission is the education of undergraduates regarding their Jewish heritage and the undertaking of philanthropic work in support of their communities.

The fraternity’s current international philanthropy is Magen David Adom (MDA), the emergency ambulance service in Israel. Alpha Epsilon Pi has come very close to meeting its goal of raising $100,000 for MDA, and expects to present a check in that amount to the emergency ambulance service during a trip to Israel at the end of this calendar year.

Locally, the University of Virginia chapter of Alpha Epsilon Pi raises money each year for the U.Va. Children’s Medical Center and participates in other community and university activities.

Levine and his wife, Sandra, have two children and one grandson and reside in Charlottesville.
