Meet the Brothers
“Mahi Mahi”, Theta Pledge Class
Major: Religious Studies
Extracurriculars: Yale Record, Yale Undergraduate Law Review
Everything I have put in to AEPi I have gotten back tenfold. The Brothers are truly my best friends at Yale. Apart from the incredible time I have hanging out, AEPi has given me an incredibly strong and accessible network of emotional, spiritual, academic and career support. My favorite experience was getting involved in a high speed bike chase in an attempt to take the crown in AEPi Assassins.
In the near future I plan to either work in law or attend law school. Beyond that, intellectual property interests me most, though criminal defense and politics have their places on my horizon too.
Brothers’ info coming soon.
“Snoop-a-loop”, Xi Pledge Class
Major: Ethics Poltics and Economics or Global Affairs
Extracurriculars: Competitive Model UN Team, Israel Advocacy: AIPAC, Yale Friends of Israel, Research Assistant for Professor Charles Small at Yale Initiative for the Interdisciplinary Study of Anti-Semitism, Colleges Against Cancer
My name is Uriel Epshtein and I’m a freshman in Trumbull College living in one of the smallest suites on Old Campus, dubbed “the jail of Yale” by previous inhabitants. Though I haven’t decided for sure yet, I will most likely major in either Ethics Politics and Economics or Global Affairs while also studying Russian and French. When not serenading women with Backstreet Boys with my Pledge Brother, wooing them with my incredible voice, I compete as a member of MUNTY (the Yale competitive Model UN team), work for the Yale Initiative for the Interdisciplinary Study of Anti-Semitism as a research assistant, write for the Globalist blog, and spend time, of course, with the other brothers of AEPi! That sort of camaraderie is the reason I joined the fraternity. I was in BBYO in high school and really enjoyed being connected with great Jewish kids from around New Jersey. After graduating and going to college, I wanted to continue that sort of experience and AEPi provided exactly what I was looking for: a laid-back environment where I could hang out with a bunch of Jewish guys. Eventually, I hope to become a political commentator, a lawyer focusing on Constitutional/international/criminal law, or that guy in the Old Spice ads.
