Welcome to Texas Apes!

A site by, for and about the rapidly growing community (we hope) of AEPi Alumni from the University of Texas at Austin.

Please participate and keep in touch with your brothers... or you'll have to answer to Fanny Ruth!

From Brother Jeff Dworkin on the passing of Gamma Deuteron’s first Master, Bernard Rappaport:


It is with a very heavy heart this Passover Eve that I give you the news of the passing of one of our Founding Fathers- Bernard Rapoport, the 1st Master of Gamma Deuteron, The Past Chairman of the UT Board of Regents, a Gittleson medallion recipient and someone who truly cared about The University, AEPi and so many Jewish causes.

Here is a press release from the University: http://www.utexas.edu/news/2012/04/06/rapoport_bernard/

Here is the Plaque that is permanently attached to the entry hall of our new house with Bernie’s name on it:









Here are pictures of “Bernie” at the dedication;












Brothers, please keep the Rapoport family in your prayers as you sit down at your Passover table this evening.

I will pass on further information about funeral, etc. as they become available.
