The Liesl M. Blockstein Memorial Lecturer will be Jill Karofsky, Executive Director of the Wisconsin Department of Justice’s Office of Crime Victim Services. Prior to her appointment, Jill was an Assistant Attorney General – Violence Against Women Resource Prosecutor at the Wisconsin Department of Justice. In that role, she provided training and support to Wisconsin prosecutors to enhance their prosecutions of sexual assault, domestic violence, stalking, and related offenses.

This memorial lecture is an annual event in memory of Liesl M. Blockstein, a beloved member of the Beth El community and deeply involved in Jewish Social Services. Her husband, William L. Blockstein, also of blessed memory, established this lecture and scholarship fund to celebrate the achievements of Wisconsin women in politics, public service, religion, arts, literature, and music, as well as in other areas of endeavor. Beneficiaries of this fund also include Wisconsin residents (women) who are admitted to an accredited course of study at the Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion in the rabbinate, the cantorate, Jewish education, and Jewish communal service. Sponsored by Temple Beth El and Jewish Social Services.
