The Leisl Blockstein annual lecture is a joint program of Temple Beth El and Jewish Social Services. Liesl M. Blockstein was 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.
