Proud of its rich heritage and founding as the world’s first Jewish fraternity, Zeta Beta Tau actively seeks out ways to effectively partner with organizations that align themselves with similar values. Zeta Beta Tau continues to develop relationships, programs, and opportunities for its members by collaborating with campus partners, pro-Israel organizations, high school youth groups, and more.
Read the Fraternity's statement on ZBT's position on the BDS (Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions) movement.
The Zeta Beta Tau Foundation’s Heritage Initiative supports a variety of programs which help educate our brothers on issues of importance to the Jewish community including Israel and anti-Semitism. The Israel Advocacy Summit, Chapter Heritage Grants and Hate Against One Is Hate Against All programs are examples of such opportunities. These programs help enhance relationships with campus-based Jewish organizations, provide opportunities for undergraduate brothers to remain engaged in Jewish life and honor the heritage of our great Fraternity.
Our partners include Hillel, Chabad on Campus, Israel on Campus Coalition, The David Project, StandWithUs, AIPAC, ADL, JWI, BBYO, USY and more.

Chapter Heritage Grants
The initiative provides funds for chapters/colonies to sponsor events with local organizations who assist ZBT in preserving and cultivating its relationships within the Jewish community. Examples of events the funds were used for in the last school year include Shabbat dinners, educational speakers and service projects aimed at strengthening Jewish life on campus.
