In 1996, the Arizona Center for Judaic Studies began the Distinguished Lecture Series. Lectures were held at The University of Arizona and attendance was small, but not for long. After only a few years the awareness of the series grew and the series was moved to the Tucson Jewish Community Center.
Although cousins Shaol and Louis Pozez were major supporters of the series, it wasn't until after Shaol's death in 2000 that the series was renamed The Shaol Pozez Memorial Lectureship Series in his honor.
The Shaol Pozez Memorial Lectureship Series is made possible by the generous support of the Pozez Families & The Pozez Family Fund at the Community Foundation of Southern Arizona.
