Approximately 600 students from around the world have descended on Phoenix for the 105th Alpha Epsilon Pi International Convention this weekend. During the convention, the young men will take part in class sessions that will teach them how to combat anti-Semitism and how to deal with the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement that has swept across many universities nationwide.

The annual convention was established to give young men the opportunity to connect and meet other Jewish students from different Alpha Epsilon Pi (AEPi) chapters and schools that they normally do not connect with. On Saturday, the fraternity will introduce its newly elected international president, Jeff Jacobson. Jacobson, who is from Tucson and has a background primarily as an attorney, has been involved with Jewish leadership for many years.
