Pretty as a Picture


How about an even dozen of cute Jewish frat boys gracing your 2011 calendar?

That’s what Cornell Hillel will sell you for ten bucks.

Here’s Mr. January, AEPi president Matt Lerner:


And here’s Mr. November, “perfect” to take home to mom and dad:

Junior Susu Fried, president of the school’s Jewish Greek Council and incoming engagement chair for Cornell Hillel’s executive board, came up with the scheme to raise awareness of Hillel activities on campus.

Hillel printed 75 calendars and sold them all, she reports:

 “A few of the Greek men we approached were hesitant at first to take part in the project because the calendar was the first of its kind, but many of the men were ecstatic about the opportunity.”

Wonder if they’ll be ecstatic when the calendar shows up at their first job interview.

Susa adds that Jewish Greek men “make perfect ‘pinup’ calendar subjects because they are endearing and have the right sense of humor about themselves.”

Kudos to Susu and Co. for thinking outside the box. And to the guys for being good sports.
