Jewish Groups and Programs
Oregon State University is home to the Omicron Sigma Colony of Alpha Epsilon Pi Fraternity. AEPi is the only Jewish fraternity on campus and one of the most preeminent fraternities in the world. They seek to create a lifelong brotherhood and promote the fraternal values that we hold dear.
Brothers on campus are involved with Stand With Us, and serve on Oregon State Hillel Student Leadership Board, in addition to a large number of other clubs, organizations, and opportunities available on campus.
Opportunities (both past and present) has included consistent work with the Oregon State Food Pantry, opportunities to travel to Student Civics Conventions in Washington, D.C., Combatting Hate Speech conferences in Los Angeles, Regional Chapter Conclave, and attendance to the International Convention in August, taking place in Las Vegas, Nevada in 2017, and this past year in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

LGBTQIA+ SOCIAL HOUR
Every Monday from 5-6 pm on Zoom or in person, Jewish students from both OSU and UO who identify with the LGBTQIA+ community come together to meet, connect, and expand Hillel's advocacy and celebration of our queer community.
This student group was started in 2021 by student leader Nathan Waldman. Nathan (they/them) is a passionate student advocate who is committed to bringing equity and inclusion into the spaces they occupy.
This group allows students to connect with each other, process their unique experiences, and discuss the intersectionality of their identities. This group is currently meeting virtually but is looking to find a scheduled time to meet in person come fall.
If you are interested in joining this group, please contact our Social Justice fellow, Talia Leider!
