Roberta Elliott is an activist, writer and photographer. Since retiring from a lifetime of work as a communications professional in the Jewish community, she has devoted herself to volunteer work, primarily with refugees both here and abroad. Her article, “In Vienna with Syrian Refugees,” published in the Winter 2015-16 issue of Lilith Magazine, was awarded First Prize for Excellence in Social Justice Writing by the Rockower Competition for Excellence in Jewish Journalism. When not working with refugees, she is passionate about shared society in Israel and serves on the boards of several organizations that promote that vision. To improve her skills in board service, she recently completed a certificate program in board management from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. In her spare time, she is working toward becoming a life master in bridge and improving her sailing skills. She and her husband, Charles Wantman, split their time between South Orange, NJ and Tucson, AZ. She is the founder of the Tucson chapter of the Sisterhood of Salaam Shalom.
