Liesl M. Blockstein Memorial Lecture Featuring Rabbi Andrea Steinberger

Sunday February 9th, 2020 from 9:45am to 11:00am

Antisemitism on the College Campus: Executive Orders, Free Speech, Inclusivity, Exclusivity and Safe Space

Rabbi Steinberger will talk about recent campus culture – here in Wisconsin and internationally. She will address what has changed in the campus dialogue and awareness – about the Holocaust, the State of Israel, and cultural norms, from one generation to another. She will discuss ideas like Intersectionality, identifying as a Jew on campus and how anti-Zionism and antisemitism often end up in the same conversations, thinking about some subtle and not so subtle attitudes and behaviors, and end with optimism about the future.


Rabbi Steinberger serves at the Hillel at the University of Wisconsin. Since 1999 she has provided opportunities for students on the UW campus to explore spiritual practices, experience Jewish learning, ask difficult questions and come together for Shabbat and holidays. Andrea helps students create and expand their Jewish lives and practices during their college years at the University of Wisconsin. Andrea and her husband, Greg, have three children: Abby, Emma and Sari Steinberger.

This event will take place at Temple Beth El 2702 Arbor Drive, Madison, WI 53711.
