“Representative Subeck, Representative Riemer, and I are proud Jewish Wisconsinites and we have been given the honor to represent this great state,” said Brostoff in a statement. “We know it is important to recognize the key role Jewish Wisconsinites have played in our state’s history. Since our arrival in Wisconsin, Jewish immigrants have been important to the success and to the shaping of Wisconsin through the sharing of our religious traditions, civic engagement, philanthropy, business establishment, and more.”

The Assembly passed the resolution in May.

Brostoff represents much of Milwaukee’s East Side; Riemer, a swath of the Milwaukee area’s South Side and Subeck, western Madison. All three are Democrats.
