Campus Organizations

Miami Chabad House

Chabad on campus provides a "home away from home". Vibrant, practical, traditional Judaism and all Jewish needs for Miami students, MU faculty, and Jewish residents of, and visitors to, the Oxford area in a friendly and warm atmosphere.

Chabad events are open and welcoming to all regardless of background, prior knowledge, or affiliation. Chabad has the philosophy that every Jew deserves an equal opportunity to experience and enjoy their heritage. This is achieved through regular classes on a variety of Jewish topics, trips, fun and social events, programs for Shabbat, the Jewish holidays, and more.

Chabad strives to ensure that students graduate as stronger and more empowered Jews than when they entered.

Alpha Epsilon Phi (AEPhi)

Alpha Epsilon Phi was founded on October 24, 1909 by 7Jewish women—Helen Phillips, Ida Beck, Rose Gerstein, Augustina "Tina" Hess, Lee Reiss, Rose Salmowitz and Stella Strauss—at Barnard College for women in New York. These women gathered together and founded this sorority because they were unwelcome at the other sororities on campus. The sorority's goal was to create lifelong friendship and sisterhood, and foster academic excellence, social involvement and community service, all the while providing a home away from home for its members.

AEPhi is a sorority that is meant for Jews and non-Jews who respect the Jewish ideals of its founding members. However, this is not a religious organization. As a sorority we work to be involved within the community through community service, sisterhood programs, and participation in Greek Events. AEPhi also works to raise money for our two national philanthropies: The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric Aids Foundation, and the Sheba Medical Center in Tel Hashomer Israel.

Alpha Epsilon Pi (AEPi)

Alpha Epsilon Pi, the Jewish Fraternity of North America, was founded to provide opportunities for a Jewish man seeking the best possible college and fraternity experience. We have maintained the integrity of our purpose by strengthening our ties to the Jewish community and serving as a link between high school and career. Alpha Epsilon Pi develops leadership for the North American Jewish community at a critical time in a young man's life.
