“Saratov has the most beautiful women in Russia.”“Saratov has the most beautiful women in Russia.”I was in Westport, Conn., the other day, giving a briefing to the Jewish Federation on Russia and Ukraine and the work we [the Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) and federations] do together. And a random factoid came up, which I want to bring up here. We were talking about Saratov, the unofficial second capital of the Volga region of Russia. I made a joke about Yuri Gagarin, Russia’s first cosmonaut, who not only came from Saratov but also landed his Soyuz capsule there. (The joke was that he wanted to go home to his mom and dad for dinner. It was funny; you had to be there.)

Alpha Epsilon Pi at URI to be rechartered PDF Print E-mail

Alpha Epsilon Pi (AEPi), [a Jewish college fraternity] at the University of Rhode Island, is nearing the close of a banner year, one that’s seen it grow in size and achieve what all fraternities strive for: a charter.

All of AEPi’s successes this year have been building up to one event – rechartering. On April 19 the Alpha Epsilon Pi Rho Colony was rechartered and once again became the Rho Chapter. This begins a new chapter for AEPi, a fraternity with a long presence at URI, beginning with the original chartering on April 1, 1928, and including rechartering on Oct. 21, 1978. Members of the fraternity, which was restarted in 2009, eagerly anticipated this event.

The brothers of Rho are looking for historically significant items, including those that were in the chapter house at 6 Fraternity Circle prior to the closure of the house. Items that are desired include plaques, awards, composite pictures and coat of arms as well as any ritual items. If any such items are available, contact either Josh Plotkin or Alumni Advisor Richard Wilkes at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

altaltThe consecutive days of Yom HaZikaron (Israel Memorial Day), which is observed on the 4th of Iyar, and Yom Ha’Atzmaut (Israel Independence Day), observed on the 5th of Iyar, are a time of extraordinary importance in Israel and in Jewish communities all over the world.

During the first day, we commemorate and remember the people who have fallen fighting and defending the State of Israel both before and after the establishment of the State on May 14, 1948, as well as people who died in terror attacks. The second day, we celebrate the independence of Israel as well as its people and achievements. We remember the past while we look toward the future.
